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.
