Description:  The 1882 $10,000 gold certificate is just one of many very rare pieces of United States currency.  The note pictured below is held in the San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank’s museum.  There is another $10,000 gold certificate from 1882 known to exist.  It has the serial number K56991.  As you can see, the note below has the serial number K31071

Based on that serial number range it would seem that more should be available.  However, you have to remember that $10,000 was a tremendous sum of money in the late 19th century.  Even a rich person couldn’t save a $10,000 bill just because it was neat.

All 1882 $10,000 bills have a portrait of Andrew Jackson on the front and eagle featured prominently on the back.  As a side note, 1888 $10,000 gold certificates were printed.  But all 1888 series notes have been redeemed. 

Variations:  There are 8 different varieties of the 1882 $10,000 gold certificate printed.  As you might expect, all of them are rare, so the signature combinations aren’t terribly important.  For the record though, they are:

Bruce – Gilfillan – with a brown seal
Bruce – Gilfillan – with a brown seal, and signed by Thomas C Acton, and payable at New York
Bruce – Wyman – with a brown seal
Rosescrans – Hyatt – with a large red seal
Rosecrans – Nebeker – with a small red seal
Lyons – Roberts – with a small red seal
Vernon – Treat – with a small red seal
Teehee – Burke – with a small red seal (as pictured above)
