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.
