The final issuance of Confederate States dollars in the form of paper money came in 1864. With the passage of the Act of February 17, 1864, the Confederate Congress authorized the seventh series of note issues in denominations ranging from $.50 to $500 totaling some $200 million in all. This release was the highest single issue of notes by monetary value in the history of the Confederacy. Many notes saw new designs, but the most important feature was the timeline for redemption on the notes.

As the prospects of the Confederacy winning the war dwindled over the course of the conflict, so too did the value of the notes it issued. When the First Series of Confederate States notes were issued in 1861, the notes were interest-bearing at 3.65% and payable 12 months after the noted date. By the Fifth Series release in late 1862, notes were payable sixth months after a peace treaty was ratified. Sixth and Seventh Series releases had shifted to two years after a peace treaty was ratified.
