During the Civil War, the Confederate states attempted to solve their vast financial problems by issuing their own paper money. Issued into circulation in 1861, the currency ran through 1864. Notes were printed in denominations of $.50, $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50, $100, $500 and $1000.
Confederate notes held little monetary value due to the lack of gold and silver reserves by the Confederacy and their setbacks on the battlefield. Although these notes were not official legal tender, Southerners traded them as a medium of exchange.
These beautiful and interesting notes were hand signed, the designs portraying many different scenes of the daily lives of Confederates. The images feature various depictions from classic portraits and structures to military personnel and slaves at work.
Today, Confederate notes are valuable collectibles and an important part of United States history. They make a perfect addition to any coin or currency collection. All of our currency notes are guaranteed authentic and have been carefully inspected and graded by a professional numismatist.
