Colonies in America: Commerce, Business, and the Economy

Money, Prices, & Banking

Many of the resources for researching money, currency, exchange rates, prices, and banking overlap so those topics have been grouped together in this section. This section includes only some of the resources on these topics – for more granular discussions, additional articles and other books would be needed to supplement what is included here. Additional citation can be found in the "Money and Banking in the Atlantic Economy" entry by Jane Knodell in the Oxford Bibliographies database.

This section does not look at sources that are more about numismatics though books on that topic can sometimes be helpful. It also does not repeat sources that are in other parts of this guide that may also overlap with these topics. The following materials link to fuller bibliographic information in the Library of Congress Online Catalog. Links to digital content are provided when available.
