In their attempt to establish a nation, the eleven states of the Confederacy established and distributed their own currency beginning in 1861. Most Confederate currency was promissory, with the usual declaration that: “Six months after the signing of a peace treaty with the Union, this note shall be worth…. $100 dollars.”
Individual states within the Confederacy also created their own currency, causing serious price inflation as the war continued and turned against the South. The Confederate government and the individual states of the Confederacy, issued more than 270 notes in the four years of The Confederate States of America.
Created with authentic images and recreations from actual southern currency, The Confederates ® are a great gift for the private collector, history enthusiast, and card player in your family.
