El Estado de Coahuila

  Series from to total
$1 B          
$5 C          
$10 D          
$20 E          


A series supposedly authorized by a decree of 1 September 1914[text needed]. and with the imprimateur of Carranza (the notes have the legend “Esta emisión está autorizada por el Primer Jefe del Ejército Constitucionalista, Encargado del Poder Ejecutivo de la Nación” on the reverse).

However, there seems to be no mention of a 1 September decree or the subsequent issue and it was never acknowledged or mentioned by Carranza, for example in his circular núm. 10, so if this issue was ever made it will have been a local issue by a military commander.

Given that the vignette on the $1 and $10 notes is similar to (copied from?) that on an Estado de Durango series from 1915 and the whole series imitates Durango notes, and that no signed, numbered, issued examples are known these might be fantasies.
