America's Earliest Paper Currency

America's Earliest Paper Currency

Rarely seen issues of Colonial and Continental notes...

More than 200 years ago during the era of the American Revolution in the 1700’s, there was no national currency and coins were often unavailable. But our resourceful ancestors, including none other than Benjamin Franklin and Paul Revere, created a solution that included some of the world’s first paper currency. Today, paper currency issued by the individual American colonies and authorized by the Continental Congress is rarely seen outside of fine museums and prestigious private collections.

Few of these fascinating and historic notes remain; most were worn out in circulation or destroyed when the U.S. Mint began to issue official U.S. coins in the 1790’s. Available exclusively from PCS Stamps & Coins, this spectacular set is a museum-worthy collection of two hand-signed currency notes dating from the days of the Revolution and earlier.
