1814 $5 Kentucky Insurance Company Bank Note

1814 $5 Kentucky Insurance Company Bank Note

Predating most federal paper money, this $5 note was issued by the Kentucky Insurance Company nearly 200 years ago in 1814. That same year, Francis Scott Key wrote his poem “In Defense of Fort McHenry” – now the lyrics of “The Star Spangled Banner”.

As the state’s first bank, the Kentucky Insurance Company originally insured boats of the river trade when it opened in 1802. The following year, they abandoned insurance to focus solely on banking. The bank remained in business until 1819 – shortly after these historic notes were issued. Measuring slightly smaller than America’s large-size paper money at 6 3⁄4˝ x 2 3⁄4˝, each circulated note features a vignette of a woman seated in a field. These sought-after 1814 notes are sure to go fast, and our supply is strictly limited. Get your $5 note today!
