Introduction & History

This site is dedicated to fine English and American coins and tokens. Our specialty is "emergency coinage," issued to fill a need for small change in society. Introduction & history of 17th through 19th century issues, primarily coppers, are linked here for your education and pleasure. I hope you enjoy it Bill McKivor.
