The first form of paper money issued in the Republic was the negotiable promissory note. These notes were issued in response to the Panic of 1837 that gripped the United States and impacted monetary circulation and fiscal policies in Texas as well. The notes were short-lived and depreciated rapidly by 1838 to the point that the notes were no longer used.
The standout issue from the Republic of Texas debuted in 1839. Known as the redback for its red-ink prints on the reverse, the notes of the Republic of Texas were issued in denominations of $5, $10, $20, $50, $100, and $500. In total, the government of Texas is believed to have issued more than $2 million in Republic of Texas Notes.
