Florida Territory Notes

Img10.pngFlorida was a territory of the United States from 1821 when it was purchased from Spain until it achieved statehood in 1845.  During this period the territorial government tendered two issues of currency.  The 1829 issue consisted of 50c, $1, $2, $3 and $5 notes, all are extremely rare and almost never offered for sale.  The second issue, dated 1830 and 1831, consisted of $1, $2, $3 and $5 notes.  While rare, these notes are sometimes available, and we may be able to obtain them for you even if we don’t  have them in stock.  Contact us if you need any of these notes.  Note:  a few unissued remainder notes of the second issue also exist.  They were printed (1861?) with the original plates on period paper, but their exact origin remains unknown, so  they are not as costly as the issued notes.

 None in stock at this time. We do obtain Territory of Florida notes occasionally.  Let us know if you are looking for one, we may be able to locate it for you. Contact us and we’ll try:  FloridaMint@tds.net or, for Yahoo e-mail customers: floridamint1@yahoo.com
