Confederate Currency: $100 Note

Confederate Currency

The only facility that could produce coins for the Confederacy was the New Orleans branch of the U. S. Mint. When New Orleans was re-captured, all hope of minting coins for the Confederacy died and only paper currency could be issued. Over 72 major types of Confederate notes were issued between 1861 and 1864, but all became worthless at the war’s end.
