History of Currencies in Liberia
|U.S. Dollar||West African Pound||Liberian Dollar Coins||Liberian Dollar Notes|
The West African pound was legal tender during this period, replaced in November 1942 by the U.S. dollar.
Liberian dollar notes were issued at par with the U.S. dollar by Charles Taylor during the 1989-97 civil war, while “Liberty” dollars was issued in areas controlled by ECOWAS in 1991 to invalidate notes looted from the central bank, effectively creating two currency zones.
