Back then, a bank was required to purchase government bonds in amounts that depended on the value of the bank’s capital stock. A chartered bank would then be authorized to print their own national banknotes with a value of up to 90% of the purchased bonds.

At this location, First National Bank of Clermont, FL produced $136,700 of its own national currency. It stopped printing these notes in 1930. Due to dissatisfied stockholders. The bank was voluntarily liquidated on June 21, 1930, then operating as the Citizens Bank of Clermont.
