The history of monetary systems in America can best be told after clearing the ground with a brief review of the monetary condition and circumstances of the states of Europe at the time when America was discovered. Strictly speaking, these circumstances would carry us back quite to the beginning of metallic money in Greece. Chapters include: The Discovery of America; The Conquest; El Dorado; Moneys of the North American Tribes; The Seven Cities of Cibola; Aboriginal Mexico; Aboriginal Peru; The Spanish Colonies; The Dutch Colonies; Colonial Moneys of Louisiana; British Colonial Moneys; Wampum; Pine Tree, Colonial and Bank Issues; Continental Money; and, Early American Bank Notes.
