The Confederate States of America began issuing currency, both coinage and notes, in the weeks and months just after secession from the Union. The notes were not backed by any form of hard assets, with all notes issued from late 1861-onward payable only after the ratification of a treaty of peace between the United States and the Confederate States of America.
In all, the Confederate States dollars were issued through seven series representing a number of different acts passed by the Confederate government. From the beginning in March 1861 until February 1864, $50 denominations were issued. From the third series released in December 1861, Confederate President Jefferson Davis appeared on the obverse of the notes.
