For instance the American gold and silver certificates had 100 % metallic reserves behind them in the treasury of the United States of America until 1933. the earliest goldsmiths certificates which served in a very limited fashion as media of exchange were representative paper money.

The law of the country makes paper money legal tender as metallic money is made. It represents metallic money and the public knows that they will get metallic money on demand. Paper money circulates easily and performs all he functions because of the confidence which the public has in issuing authority
The following are some of the kinds of paper money:
1 representative paper money:
It represents paper money. It is issued on the strength of an equivalent amount of metallic money deposited in the treasury. To save wear and tear of the metal the metallic money is kept in deposit and money of an equivalent value is issued for circulation. This type of money is called representative paper money.

2 fiduciary paper money:
Sometimes the total value of notes issued is not backed by the equivalent amount of metal but a part of it is backed by metallic reserve and the remaining is backed by securities. The portion of paper money backed by security is called fiduciary paper money.
3 fiat money: when paper money represents nothing it is backed neither by metallic coins nor by securities it is called fiat money. It is also called inconvertible paper money
