America’s Original Currency, a tribute to all Americans past & present!

If notes could talk, what would the highly collectible Colonial notes say about the significant role they played in achieving independence for all Americans? ….
For some fascinating information about these rare and beautiful notes, read on …..

WWI ended on November 11th, 1918; In tribute and honor of another GREAT war, the Revolutionary War, all Americans cherish America’s Original Currency.
Our early American history — from a political, social, and certainly economical perspective — is fascinating. Fortunately, for all currency enthusiasts, this history is exemplified in the first American currency, lovingly referred to as Colonial Currency.

Colonial currency provided financial incentives and means to build America and win the Revolutionary War. Certainly, colonial currency helped supply our Continental Army and feed and clothe early colonists.

Colonial Currency notes are unique works of art and demonstrate incredible sophistication in counterfeit prevention, multi-color production techniques, engravings, woodcuts, logos, and political insignias and slogans. From Maryland to Georgia, these diverse currency items were expertly crafted by local artisans, engravers, and printers. Looking at each note, you will touch this history, feel the strength and determination of these early patriots, and wonder at the skill and splendor each note demonstrates.

Colonial notes are rare, sought-after, desirable but, surprisingly, well within reach of most collectors. Market values placed on these notes are based on condition, demand, and rarity; the original value of the notes is far less significant. For example, regardless of denomination, notes produced by Benjamin Franklin and Paul Revere will have greater value due to greater interest and demand. Additionally, notes produced during the Revolutionary War have seen greater interest, with the idea that those notes display powerful patriotic symbolism and may have been placed in the pockets of patriot soldiers as they took arms against the British.

Colonial currency collectors build collection sets in a number of ways. One common method is to collect a note from each of the original 13 colonies. Similarly, many collectors choose a “favorite” colony and collect samples of each of the emissions and/or denominations.

Fortunately, internationally recognized grading services such as PCGS and PMG are now verifying and grading Colonial money. Thus, graded notes carry greater value and notes with higher grades command exceptional prices.

Though the perception is that these notes are of a premium price, collectors are still able to find and purchase notes from all 13 colonies for a relatively fair price. Collections with all 13 colonies are then passed down from generation-to-generation, as family heirlooms, pride in our country, and outstanding investments.

Therefore, now is the time to invest in colonial currency; affordable prices will NOT last! Large numbers of new currency collectors are reaching retirement age and are “in droves” contributing to higher demand and higher prices.

Proudly, has excellent examples of Colonial Currency notes from each of the 13 colonies as well as the Continental Congress issues.
