Newfoundland was the only British colony in North America to strike gold coins for general circulation.
This was remarkable given that it was one of the poorest British possessions in North America and with an economy largely based on the barter system.
This book explores the history of Newfoundland through its coinage.
It presents fascinating new details for each year that gold coins were minted, the existing distribution of these scarce coins, a survey of the greatest collections ever assembled, and the provenances of the rarest of the gold coins.
