About Federal Reserve Bank Notes. Federal Reserve Bank Notes-not to be confused with Federal Reserve Notes-are no longer issued and are probably the most obscure type of paper currency. Federal Reserve Bank Notes were authorized by the Federal Reserve Act of December 23, 1913, and used as a form of emergency currency in the early. While the Federal Reserve Notes we see every day are the responsibility of the Federal Reserve System as a whole, Federal Reserve Bank Notes were obligations of the 12 different Federal Reserve Banks that issued them.

The notes were first issued in fiscal year 1916. One of the primary purposes of the Federal Reserve System, established in late 1913, was to eliminate the system of. National Bank Notes and to replace it with a centrally controlled system of Federal Reserve Notes. However, dispersing Federal Reserve Notes across the country took time and lawmakers feared that National Bank Notes might be withdrawn from circulation faster than the new Federal Reserve Notes could be issued. This could cause sudden drops in the number of notes in different parts of the country.

Resulting in regional scarcities of currency. In such cases, the local Federal Reserve Bank was authorized to step in and issue its own temporary currency to make up the deficiency. But few National Banks retired their currency as quickly as lawmakers had feared, and there was little demand for Federal Reserve Bank Notes.

To make up the loss in circulation, Federal Reserve Bank Notes were issued as an emergency replacement. Production of the notes ended in 1922.

By that time, the Treasury had replaced the missing silver, and Silver Certificates were reissued as the Federal Reserve Bank Notes were retired. A small-sized form of the notes was produced and issued in early March 1933 when President Franklin D. Roosevelt closed all the banks for three days to stop a banking panic during the Great Depression. The Treasury feared that once the. Banks reopened there would be a mad dash by depositors for cash, sucking all the available National Bank Notes and Federal Reserve Notes out of the economy.

To counter this threat, Federal Reserve Banks were authorized for a limited time to issue as many notes as they saw fit. These notes began to be retired as the end of the war approached; and, in the summer of 1945, Congress. Amended the Federal Reserve Act to end the use of Federal Reserve Bank Notes.
