NEW YORK. 6% Gold Certificate of $1000. green, black. No 43. Folds with one small stain. In 1908 the Venezuelan president Castro had to leave for Europe for medical treatment, and the vice-president Juan Vicente Gomez acted as president in his absence. Gomez organised a coup to exclude Castro and make himself official president. This caused much anger among liberal circles in Venezuela and in the USA and Europe, but no firm action was taken. In 1911, it appears, a group of liberal Venezuelans and Americans in New York organised a movement to depose Gomez, and was to issue 1,000 bonds of $US1,000 each to raise funds to this end, the bonds to be repaid one year after the removal of Gomez from his presidency. the head of this movement was Luis Guzman, who has signed this bond, along with the treasurer of the fund, Charles Schmidt. As far as we know, the junta achieved nothing. An interesting bond if you ask us.
