$8 Continental Currency, 1776

By: Handini

Shown below is an $8 Continental Currency note of the 5th issue, that is notes dated July 22, 1776. Denominations of this issue included $2, $3, $4, $5, $6, $7, $8, and $30 notes (Source: Pick). I find it interesting that there is a large jump from $8 to $30 with no in-between denominations for this issue. Another interesting thing to note is how $30 is the highest issue for the 5th issue but by the time the 11th and final issue is printed, there were denominations as high as $80 issued as the Continental Dollar became devalued throughout the American Revolutionary War.
