What are Civil War Era Coins

Civil war era coins were the currency used during the American Civil War from 1861 to 1865, considered as one of the darkest times in the country’s history. Just think about how much these coins had witnessed. This is why a lot of coin collectors and investors are dying to have them in their portfolios.

There are many different kinds of civil war coins. Others were made only a handful, and some were unique. Due to the chaotic situation, there was shortage of coins. This led to private minters making their own coins. Coin values were determined based on their rarity. In 1864, all private minting was banned.

Today, there are still a lot of civil war coins in circulation, but most of the rare ones are already in the collection. If you are looking for these rare coins, check out First Class Coins. We may have what you are looking for.
