The U.S. Postage Currency was the first issue of Fractional Currency. Issued first in 1862 and intended to replace small change as most coins had been hoarded and there were virtually no small coins in circulation. Originally intended for the purchase of postage stamps, the Fractional Currency notes soon became the main medium of commerce and replaced coins in daily transactions.
