Confederate Currency

At the height of one of the most turbulent times in American history, The Confederacy began printing Confederate currency. Most of the Confederate currency was used to purchase goods from England to aid in their war effort against the United States. Much of what was left of the printed Confederate Currency was used in merchant transactions in the South as well as for purchasing war bonds and other investments in the fledgling so called “Republic of the South” so that they could gain some solvency in their international relations. Confederate currency played an important role in the Southern states for the few short years of their independence from the Union.

Once reunification took place after the Civil War’s end, the Confederate currency became obsolete, putting an end to the legal tender status of Confederate currency and marking the beginning of the collectible status of the Confederate currency notes. Confederate currency has enjoyed a fairy regular demand on the open numismatic markets for many decades.

Unfortunately, with the demand for Confederate currency also comes the unscrupulous counterfeiting and reprinting of the Confederate currency notes. To the properly trained numismatist, these Confederate currency notes are easily detectable. Gauging the paper quality and the cut of the Confederate currency notes are key factors in making these kinds of determinations.

Generally, unless they are rare variations of the Confederate currency notes, the authentic notes can be worth as much as third of their face value or more on the collectible markets. This, of course, is assuming they are in a well preserved condition. Confederate currency notes that are tattered or torn can be worth significantly less. In addition, the higher denomination Confederate currency notes will carry more of a premium simply because they are in a slightly higher demand.

My friend and I came here to sell some coins and jewelry. We first saw Scott about some coins. He was very friendly and knew his stuff. Afterwards, he brought us over to Sheila who looked at our jewelry. She was also very nice and professional. We will definitely come back here again. GREAT PLACE!!!!

Nevada Coin and Jewelry – has excellent customer service – providing las Vegas with top notch service and expertise – this is my primary coin dealers — others just can’t keep up – they are helpful and friendly – in my opinion they are the best in the south west area — so that’s my review a++++ rating – because I am a good customer – this is the best place to buy and sell gold and silver bullion.

I am a brazilian and had the chance to deal with Nevada Coin. I was there to sell some gold coins and they paid me the best price I could fetch in Las Vegas. They are professional, courteous and trustworthy. Before visiting their premises I got a tentative appraisal by phone which I found reasonable. In the shop the attendant offered to approach the manager to get me a (gasp) BETTER price. Do yourself a favor and don’t bother talking to their rude and unprofessional competitors. They will treat you like a moron and quote prices accordingly. For Nevada Coin, five Stars all the way.


Great family run store. I’m well taken care of every time I show up at this location. Thank you Nick.

The staff are quick at work but not too quick to make you feel pressured into buying items or selling your items. They teach you about the items and tell you if they have use for your items or not. If they don’t have use for your items they call other places to see if they have a use for the items. Great staff!


A.J. and Robert are so friendly and make it so you have the best deal with the items you bring them. They have so much knowledge about all the items they have in their shop and they like to teach others about what they know…


What friendly staff. They help you sell your items even if they don’t have a use for it by calling other shops around the area to see if they could use it… They want you to have the best out come from selling your items. I was so happy I decided to go to them!


A great selection of coins and other numismatic related material. Very professional.

After visiting a couple of the “traveling gold & silver merchants” who came to Mesquite, I made a call to Nevada Coin & Jewelry in Las Vegas… David was very helpful and professional. Their prices were the best I had seen… I left very satisfied with my trip and the deals we made. I will definitely go there again.

We were really pleased with the help that AJ gave us concering our gold coins and watches. I don’t think we could have received a better deal anywhere. All of the personnel at Nevada Coin & Jewelry were very professional. We will recommend them to our friends.

While vacationing in Las Vegas I did what a lot of people do I’m sure or at least that’s what I’m telling my wife ..I blew through the money I brought a little quicker than expected and I ended up having to shop my Rolex around to several dealers to save the trip. So I looked online for places, most offers over the phone were low and that’s if they would even quote me in the first place. I spoke to a guy at Nevada Coin and Jewelry who gave me a fair ball park price and a reasonable explanation as to why his number couldn’t be solid. Went down expecting to get the lower number and in fact Robert their Rolex expert said my Rolex was a better model then I had described. He paid me a higher number than he quoted. Thanks for saving my vacation guys.
