The Assignat notes of the French Revolution were issued from 1790 - 1796. As with the Continental and State issues of the American Revolution, these notes as a whole are not especially rare, but they are tremendously important from a historical perspective because they illustrate a critical period of history. The ANA is fortunate to have a small group of these notes in the collection helping to highlight an otherwise obscure monetary experiment of the French Revolution.
