PeriodLiberian Dollar (first period)
Used1847 - 1907
Description

The first Liberian dollar was issued in 1847. It was pegged to the US dollar at par and circulated alongside the US dollar until 1907, when Liberia adopted the British West African pound, which was pegged to the pound sterling. United States currency replaced the British West African pound in 1935.

Starting in 1937, Liberia issued its own coins which circulated alongside US currency. In the late 1980s the coins were largely replaced with a newly designed $10 note modeled on the US greenback ("J. J. Roberts" notes).

The Liberian Dollar is now the official currency of the Republic of Liberia. However, the United States Dollar is also legal tender in Liberia and is used along side the Liberian Dollar currency.
