From 1775 to 1779, the Continental Congress issued $241, 552,780 worth of Continental Currency in eleven different printings. Because coins were so scarce during the American Revolution, these bills and the state issued note were practically the only money in circulation. Anyone refusing to accept the money was branded a traitor and a Tory. For 1-1/2 years Continental Currency circulated at face value, but beginning in 1777 it steadily lost value until by 1780 it had declined to about 1/40th of its original value. Spawning the phrase "Not worth a Continental".
