Description

    Continental Currency January 14, 1779 $45 PMG Very Fine 25. The $45 denomination was used only in this final issue of Continentals, which makes it one of the keys to a denomination set. This is a nicely printed example with clear text and an attractive nature print. Francis Hopkinson, who has been credited by many as a designer of the American flag and was a signer of the Declaration of Independence as a representative for New Jersey, developed the emblems and mottoes for four of the denominations for this issue including the $45 note. The emblem is beehives protected by a shed. The motto is SIC FLORET RESPUBLICA (thus let the nation flourish). The nature print is ground ivy. John Leacock and Robert A. Roberts were the signers on this example.
