Colonial and Continental Currency Now Eligible for PMG’s Registry

Continental CurrencySince the introduction of the Notes Registry at the end of August, interest has been growing. We currently have more than 200 sets that have been created by our users. Now, PMG has released a Colonial and Continental Currency category with numerous sets for the collectors of these unusual notes. These sets were created using the Friedberg arrangement from “Paper Money of the United States – 18th Edition.”

Beginning with Colonial Currency and continued with Continental Currency, which was issued in 11 series by the Continental Congress to finance the Revolutionary War, these early notes established our country’s financial separation from England.

The Colonial notes show how we adapted the denominations of our heritage (Spanish Milled dollars, British Shillings and Pence) but by printing our own money we were attempting to distinguish ourselves from these countries while still keeping trade active.

These notes are collectible for a number of reasons including their rarity, the unique designs and the historical signatures that adorn many of the notes as they were often hand-numbered and hand-signed.
