Description:  Ten dollar national gold bank notes are not rare, but they are very valuable in very fine condition or better.  Heavily circulated notes like the one seen below are available several times a year.

At the time of circulation national gold bank notes were the only paper money in California backed by a precious metal.  As such, these were in hot demand over any other federally issued currency.  It was this preference that led to lots of circulation and heavy use.

The back of all national gold bank notes shows a large group of coins, the state seal of California, and a perched eagle.  The front of these bills shows a man flying a kite with a boy.  The year 1752 is printed near that vignette.  Ten dollar national gold bank notes are expensive because they are appealing to national bank note collectors, type note collectors, and even some coin collectors.
