Coins in Circulation in Virginia - King and Queen Co. VA Wills, Estates - #genealogy -

Coins in Circulation in the Virginia Colony
By Jeannette Holland Austin
Jeannette Holland Austin
It is significant to find that among the different kinds of money sterling in circulation in the counties along the Eastern Shore was the lion or dog collar, as it was called from the device on its face. Perhaps this was a Dutch coin obtained during the smuggling of traffic into the colony (despite Navigation Laws). The merchants of of Holland found easy trade with the colonists during the 17th century which undoubtably assisted the early colonists in their survival. A petition in 1696 from the planters of Accomac to their representatives in the House of Burgesses, asked that a legal value be set upon the lion or dog in order that it might be used to advantage in current business transactions.

Every Virginia Pioneers - Virginia Genealogy email I receive has a beautiful picture of a natural vista or historic building. I do not live in Virginia so these are not familiar sights to me. It would be nice if you would caption/label the images with the location or name of building. I always feel I am missing something or cannot fully appreciate them because I have no idea what they are. Thank you for considering my suggestion.
