Colonial Coins
Most of the American colonies were ruled by England, and their
governments were run in accordance with charters granted by
England's king. While a few of these charters permitted the
colonial governments to manufacture coins, most did not. The
first English colony to challenge this prohibition was
Massachusetts Bay. In 1652 the colony of Massachusetts Bay
established a mint in Boston.
