Values of $500 1882 Gold Certificates

Price Guide for 1882 $500 Bills

Year:  1882

Denomination:  Five Hundred Dollar Bill

Type:  Gold Certificate

Portrait:  Abraham Lincoln

$500 Bill Front Picture:

Value and History:   This is the oldest large size $500 bill that is considered relatively affordable. However, there is a catch to that statement. Some 1882 $500 gold certificates are extremely rare and worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. Others are only worth a few thousand dollars. It all depends on the seal type and signature combination. There are a total of seven different varieties. The basic design type will be the same as what we are showing in the picture above. Needless to say, if you have an 1882 $500 gold certificate then it would be wise to work with an expert so that you understand which variety you have.
