1928C twenty dollar bills are special because they were redeemable in gold. They read “Redeemable In Gold On Demand At The United States Treasury, Or In Gold Or Lawful Money At Any Federal Reserve Bank.” The above phrase is known as the gold clause. This phrase does not make 1928C Federal Reserve $20 bills also gold certificates. Gold certificates have a gold colored seal and serial number.

You can also find “Federal Reserve Note The United States Of America Will Pay To The Bearer On Demand Twenty Dollars” printed on each note. All series of 1928C $20 bills were signed by W.O. Woods as the Treasurer of The United States and by Ogden L Mills as the Secretary of the Treasury.
