The Molossian Valora is the main currency of the Republic of Molossia. Issued by the Bank of Molossia, the currency consists of coins made from plastic-composite gaming chips and banknotes printed on customary linen paper.

Coins

Coins issued by the Bank of Molossia are made of a plastic-composite material. The first denomination, 1 Valora, issued in 2004 but undated, features the shield from the Coat of Arms of Molossia with the national animal, the wild horse on the obverse. On the reverse is the National Colors and a wreath surrounding the denomination. The second denomination, 5 Valora, was issued in 2005, features the image of His Excellency, the President Kevin Baugh on the obverse and the denomination surrounded by a wreath with the National Colors and Molossia's motto "Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained" on the reverse. The third denomination, 10 Valora, was issued in 2005, features the portrait of Emperor Norton I on the obverse and a compass surrounding the denomination and a quotation from Emperor Norton I: "To ameliorate the evils under which the country is laboring, and thereby cause confidence to exist, both at home and abroad, in our stability and integrity". The symbols on the coins represent not only Molossia's location within the well-known state of Nevada, but also represent Enterprise (Clubs), Strength (Spades), Prosperity (Diamonds), and Happiness (Hearts). Three commemorative coins were issued by the bank, a 50 Valora coin made of a nickel-brass composition, was issued to commemorate the Treaty of Friendship between Molossia and Westartica. The second commemorative coin was issued in 2007 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the founding of Molossia, then known as the Grand Republic of Vuldstein. It features the Greater Coat of Arms of Molossia and the description "Thirtieth Anniversary", the anniversary date, 26 May, 2007 and the name of the nation on the obverse. The reverse features the Arms of Vuldstein and the founding date, 26 May, 1977. Since there is no denomination on the coin, it was issued for the collector's market and not for general use. The third commemorative coin was issued in 2011 to commemorate the Presidential Wedding of His Excellency, the President and the First Lady of Molossia. It features the image of the President and First Lady of Molossia in profile and the date of the Wedding on the obverse. The reverse shows the composite of the initials of the name of the nation superimposed on the image of the stylized Vévé of Erzulie Freda, the voodoo loa (goddess) of love.

Banknotes

Banknotes of Molossia are issued by the Bank of Molossia and are printed on customary linen paper. Its first banknotes were issued in 2003, during the nation's Greek Crisis. The President of Molossia, Kevin Baugh ordered all references to Greece removed from Molossia's currency. It consists of four denominations, 1, 5, 10, and 20 Valora.

On November 26, 2012, the Bank of Molossia released a new series of notes as part of a project of adding a permanent location to the Bank of Molossia. The new banknotes updates the designs of past series with new graphics and guilloche designs. The currency is still printed on customary linen paper, but features the official Molossian raised stamp as a security device. As this feature is only unique in Molossia, the absence of the seal prevents an unauthorized reproduction of its currency. The new series comes in four denominations; 1, 5, 10 and 20 Valora. The 1 Valora Note features an image of the Arms of Molossia on the front and Republic Square on the back. The 5 Valora Note features the portrait of His Excellency, The President of Molossia on the front and running wild horses, the national animal of Molossia on the back.
