This Ninety Dollar paper currency for South Carolina was part of an emission of $1,000,000 denominated in Spanish milled dollars and South Carolina pounds. Engraved by Thomas Coram, the denomination is engraved in ornate script across the top. The motto which varies on each denomination is here ‘Armes Concurrite Campo’, or ‘Assemble the field of arms’. Above this is a warrior holding a shield with 13 stars. The image on the verso features Hercules strangling the Nemean lion which here represents Britain. Denominations printed were: $40, $50, $60, $70, $80, $90, and $100. This $90 bill issued 8 February 1779.
