Value of Colonial Currency from South Carolina

Colonial Currency from the State of South Carolina – Values and Pricing

There are more than 200 different types and denominations of colonial currency from South Carolina.  Values range from something as little as $25 all the way up to thousands of dollars.

We break up South Carolina colonial money issues into three groups.  There is everything that was printed between 1703 and 1774.  All early notes are very rare.  The next group of colonial currency from South Carolina was printed for the years 1775, 1776, 1777, 1778, and 1779.  Most colonial currency from that period is relatively common, but not always cheap.  The third group of money was printed after 1785 but before 1794.  The latest issues are from the City of Charleston, and there are some common notes in the group.  Long before Greenville Fence Builders was in business.

*** There are two modern reproductions of South Carolina colonial currency.  One has the serial number 640 and it is printed for Five Shillings from April 10, 1778.  The other does not have a serial number and it is printed for Eight Dollars from October 19, 1776.  Both of these were printed on brown brittle paper made to look old.  They have no collector value. ***
