At MCM we're known for a great selection of U.S. coins, but did you know that we sell collectable United States Currency as well? Whether you're looking for graded or ungraded United States currency, we have something that's right for you.
Our selection of 1700s Colonial Notes gets collectors starting from the beginning. Paper money from the colonial period varies widely, but it is all highly collectable. At one point, each colony had its own paper money. Interestingly enough, the value of a denomination in one colony often had a different value than something of the same denomination from another colony. Some colonial currency was issued in dollars, while other colonies used British units such as the pound for their paper notes.
Large Notes are another collector favorite. Large United States currency was first produced in the 1860s and continued to be made until the 1920s. U.S. currency from this period is some of the most recognizable due to its size. Large notes were a bit over 3" high and nearly 7 ½" long. Compared to modern small notes, these stand out in any collection.
Small Notes include what is in circulation today. These bills measure about 2 ½" by just over 6". There have been a variety of small notes produced over the years by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Some small notes are quite valuable even though they aren't as old as some other types of U.S. paper money. Many of these are Federal Reserve Notes, which are the only type of U.S. currency in circulation.
We have Gold and Silver Certificates available for your collection as well. Gold Certificates were redeemable for a specified amount of gold and Silver Certificates had the same function but with silver. Both of these types of certificate were produced in large and small sizes. While they were produced, the size change was just that, a size change. Today this adds an additional interesting element to collecting Gold and Silver Certificates.
