THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's first American coin?

Hogge Money, also called Hoggies were the first coins issued for American use.

These coins were struck in England in 1616 for the use in the new colonies.

They came in denominations of shilling, sixpence, threepence and twopence.

In 1652 the General Court of Massachusetts ordered the first metallic currency to be struck in the English Americas in the denominations of threepence, sixpence, and shilling.

These coins were known as the Willow Tree and struck from 1653 to 1667, but all with a 1652 date.
