Lot Details
MORMON CURRENCY.
Printed Document Signed ("B. Young"), being a $2 note, 1 p, 48 x 92 mm, Great Salt Lake City, January 20, 1849, also signed by Thomas Bulloch and H.C. Kimball, made out to N.K. Whitney, very mild toning.

Not long after their arrival in the valley of the Great Salt Lake and the appointment of Brigham Young as President, the Mormon community established its own mint that produced coinage and currency backed by the church. This $2 note with the January 20th date is from the first printing of "Valley" notes. They were replaced by coinage in the fall of 1849, and all but 184 examples were returned. This example is issued to N.K. Whitney, a presiding Bishop of the church.
