INDEPENDENT REPUBLIC OF TEXAS

SP   This banknote was donated by Steve at Pomexport "THE NUMBER ONE MONEY MAN",  an old established USA numismatic wholesale dealer. Examples of this note and the other denominations as well as a sheet containing all denominations are available from the firm.

The following information was provided by Pomexport about these interesting issues: 

"According to the Texas Militia, a new republic had been formed with its own presidency, courts, cabinet, currency and web-site (12/27/95). Articles about this break - away 'state' have appeared in both the domestic and international press. The center of this movement is in the dusty little town of Fort Davis (named for the last great secessionist, and confederate - Jefferson Davis) . The group's antics had been mild and included trying to kick out Texas Governor G.W. Bush (son of former President), calling him an impostor, and filing claims at the International Court of Justice in the Hague. They were later raided by the same US Enforcement agency (Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms, better know as the ATF) as responsible for the Waco, Texas incident. Several members of this militia group were eventually captured and at least one was killed.

The money of this small band, supposedly circulated throughout Western Texas and is known as the Pesodoll (presumably a mix between the peso and the dollar). The monetary symbol is in part where the original dollar symbol comes from (the scrolls intertwining the pillars on the 8 - Reales coins). These notes are approximately the same size as regular US currency and depict many features unique to Texas, including portraits of Sam Houston (plus fancy signature), Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie. Further design elements include the Texas star above the Alamo (ultimate symbol of Texas freedom), mountains of West Texas and Texas Ranger on horseback. Each is attractively printed on slightly grainy paper with meshed multi - colored threads . Offered in crisp, uncirculated condition. A sheet contains all the values: 1Ps, 2Ps, 5Ps, 10Ps, 20Ps, 50 Ps & 100Ps"

These issues are political in nature and have some similarity to those of Lega Nord (Padania), the movement in northern Italy to secede from the Italian government because of grievances with the central government. Unlike internet inspired micronations, (Zugesbucht, Chatham Islands, etc.)  if successful, the Independent Republic of Texas would own land and be very wealthy

The above fantasy issues are not to be confused with those of the genuine Republic of Texas issues.
