Confederate currency played an important part in purchasing the material with which to wage war. Not having many coins, the Southern government turned to paper money. The First Issue was authorized by the Act of March 9, 1861, and some of those notes were actually printed in the North by the National Bank Note Company of New York. Through the next six issues a total of about $1, 554,000,000 was authorized to be printed. Whatever gold value the Confederate money had dropped from 90 cents on the dollar in 1861 to 4.6 cents in early 1864, to only 1.7 cents in 1865. As just two examples of the rampant inflation, butter cost $15 per pound, and shoes $125 per pair in May 1864.

The seventh issue was authorized by the Act of February 17, 1864. It is estimated that about one billion dollars was printed under this act alone! There are nine different denominations of notes in this series. Originally, $5, $10, $20, $50, and $100 bills were printed with fancy blue engraved backs. The 50 cents, $1, $2, and $500 had plain backs.
