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.
