COLONIAL WILLIAMSBURG COINS AND CURRENCY WEB SITE

Joe Lasser writes: "Erik Goldstein of Colonial Williamsburg has
created an exceptional website ďCoins & Currency in Colonial AmericaĒ
which presents the coins and paper money of our American Colonial
Period starting with the copper Santo Domingo pieces (1502-4) and
ending with our Revolutionary money (1775-83).

"The presentation provides the historical background for each major
type and photos of significant examples.  It allows viewers to zoom
into the photos to obtain greater detail of any illustrated piece and
it also provides access to additional information through activating
highlighted words in the basic text.  Itís outstandingly effective as
an instructional text.  The content and quality of the presentation
will capture any numismatistís or historianís attention.

"Yes, my wife and I assembled virtually all of the pieces now resident
at Colonial Williamsburg, but Erik Goldstein and the other members of
the CWF staff have done a remarkable job in bringing the collection to
life as an instructional teaching vehicle, thereby providing anyone
and everyone with a better understanding of American history."

The site can be accessed by:   coinExhibit

Access it.  It will provide you with a stimulating hour of
intellectual activity."
