An attractively designed $5-off admission coupon to attend the
International Paper Money Show in Memphis, Tenn., June 12 to 15 is now
available on the show website.
The partial image on the coupon shows a female allegorical figure
and a young boy together as the female figure points to the right edge
of the coupon.
The image is adapted from a large vignette, known as History
Instructing Youth, used on the face of Series 1896 $1 silver
certificates. The full vignette on the note shows the two figures
together as the female points to the Washington Monument and the U.S.
Capitol in the background. The note design also has a depiction of the
U.S. Constitution and in the borders on three edges are wreaths
bearing the names of great Americans.
The design is one of three designs on the Series 1896 silver
certificates ($1, $2 and $5) known to collectors as “Educationals,” as
all have themes of instruction or discovery.

Memphis, Tenn., costs $20 for a family show pass or $7 per person for
