FEATURED WEB SITE: COINS & CURRENCY IN COLONIAL AMERICA EXHIBIT

This week's Featured Web site is Coins & Currency In Colonial America, an online exhibit of the Lasser collection at Colonial Williamsburg. The exhibit was discussed this week on the Colonial Coins Yahoo group.

The money jingling in our pockets and folded in our wallets today literally descended from the coins used in colonial America. Pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, and dollars didnít just appear once we declared our independence from Great Britain. These familiar coins have their roots in the vast array of coins that made it to the shores of the New World after 1607 and from the paper notes created when there werenít enough coins to go around.
