Currency

Although paper currency in the United States dates back to the Colonial notes of 1690, the first paper currency officially issued by the U.S. federal government was in 1862. These first official notes, called United States notes, managed to circulate until 1971 before being completely removed from circulation. The modern Federal Reserve notes, which were released in 1914, are the only types notes currently circulating.
