Massachusetts Coin Set 1652-1787


In the New England settlements, corn, pelts and bullets were frequently offered in lieu of coins. Currency brought over from England, Holland and other countries tended to flow back across from the Atlantic for much needed supplies. With England plagued by a civil war between the Puritans and the Royalists ignored the colonists request for a standard coinage. The general court in 1652 ordered the first metallic currency in the English Americas. All coins are stamped copy and are plated to match their original appearance.
