Premiering in 1985, The Golden Girls is one of the best beloved series of all time with a passionate fan base that spans generations. The series follows four young-at-heart friends, Dorothy Zbornak, Rose Nylund, Blanche Devereaux, and Sophia Petrillo, as they enjoy life and a shared home in sunny Miami. Delighting fans for 7 seasons and 180 episodes, all filled with laughter, unforgettable moments, and friendship, the show received numerous industry awards and nominations, and is now reaching new fans through streaming and syndication channels.
The Golden Girls series holds timeless appeal among lifelong fans and audiences discovering the show. Elite Coinage is excited to debut an officially licensed limited printing of no more than 4,500 24K-gold-infused collectible notes featuring The Golden Girls. These notes feature some of the greatest anti-counterfeiting security in the world and high-end intaglio printing inlaid with 24-karat gold. Independent appraisers have awarded these notes with the highest investment grade possible. For fans and collectors alike, this is a unique and incredible memento.
The note presented in the CAG holder is officially graded and authenticated by Collectibles Authentication Guaranty (CAG), a member of the CCG family of independent third-party companies focused on expert authentication, grading, and conservation of collectibles. The certification process activates extra security features, establishes the note’s perfect grade of 70 out of 70, and comes in a CAG tamper-proof case to preserve the note in pristine condition, adding yet another layer of protection and assurance. Not only are you among the first to enjoy this one-of-a-kind note. You are among the first to enjoy this technology that aims to revolutionize the collectibles market.
We are confident that the exhaustive, multilayered printing process, limited edition, and security features make these notes stand out as collectible investments. The CAG certification is generally restricted to museums and estates. Certifying these notes unlocks random fingerprinting security features not even available on high-security government notes. What’s more, the certification holder itself is secured. If you love Golden Girls collectibles, we believe this note is a “must-have.”
Elite's technology is the cornerstone of this product. It was developed over more than two years through an exclusive partnership arrangement with VeriTrace, one of a handful of high-security printers specializing in high-security government documents, with gold-inlaid printing, more than 20 security features – many not commercially available until now – and added processes such as random fingerprint identification technologies. We have carefully constructed these features to make counterfeiting impossible.
A good first step to detecting security features is to examine the intaglio border (front of note). You can see the shimmer in natural light or view more detail and reflection under a magnifying glass with a built-in light. To detect otherwise invisible inks and fibers, you will need to buy a specific UV light of 365 nanometers (nm), inexpensive and widely available on Amazon or eBay.
Our goal is ambitious and simple: to offer peace of mind to collectors, investors, brands, and partners by elevating the collectibles market further into a solid asset class for investors. With increasing sophistication in technology and certification, the collectibles market is evolving from an emerging asset class to an accepted alternative asset. The Certified Collectibles Group, an umbrella of seven grading services, is expanding with a surge in demand as its certification methods grow more powerful. Elite Coinage is proud to be a leader in elevating collectibles as an asset class and setting new standards. There has never been a better time for educated collectors and investors.
A total of 4,500 individual notes were produced, including 3,300 regular edition notes, 350 two-note matching pair sets, and 500 publisher proofs.
Commercially reasonable variations between digital proof and finished product may exist.
Consumer segment: Young adult (18 To 24), adult (25+).
Warning: Before using tools for inspection (e.g. UV light, magnifier, laser, etc.), read and follow the operating and safety instructions
