The Early world trade coins of France traveled not only over the Atlantic Ocean, but also made journeys from Quebec to New Orleans – the two main French Colonies in the New World. The coins became legal tender in New Orleans, which was named in honor of the Regent of France – Philip II, Duke of Orleans. These coins were experienced travelers and circulated for more than a century. The New World Hoard ha an incomparable air of mystery about it. The coins were discovered under the floorboards of a small shop dating to the 17th century in Bishop’s Waltham, Hampshire, England. The hoard was on its ways to the North American Colonies, but instead mysteriously disappeared. Perhaps a French sailor stole the coins and buried them, hoping for a lifetime of riches after his return voyage from the New World. The Guidebook of United States Coinage (Redbook) has more information about these interesting coins. Colonial coinage has become very popular as more people become interested in the origin of our nation.
