Money Exhibit Includes "Mormon Money" of 1800s

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- The Federal Reserve Bank of New York, just a few blocks from the World Trade Center site, has opened a new exhibit, "Drachmas, Doubloons and Dollars: The History of Money," which includes examples of Mormon currency. As early as the 1830s, the Kirtland Safety Society set up by Joseph Smith had issued its own bank notes. This exhibit has examples of currency issued in the 1850s in Utah, as well as at Sutter's Mill, in Northern California, where members of the Mormon Battalion were involved in the discovery of gold in 1848.
