Continental Currency was the first federally issued paper money commencing with notes authorized by the May 10th, 1775 Session of the Continental Congress The issuance of these notes provided the financing that made the American Revolution possible. Continental notes were a promise to pay which bore no interest and were to be redeemed with taxes levied by the individual United Colonies. The notes circulated concurrently with colonial paper currency issued by the individual colonies. This issuance formed a medium of exchange to finance the Revolutionary War.
