On my hypothesis, that the services of an English labourer Edition: current; Page: [7] for a year, his wages having been advanced for a year, are worth about nine pounds nine ounces of silver, the corn produced by him in a year on the worst land, his wages having been advanced for a year, must be worth nine pounds nine ounces of silver, and. Apparently a bag containing £6 worth of halfpence was discovered to have 36s worth of cast counterfeit coins. This calculates to counterfeit halfpence or 30% out of a total of 2, coins. It was further stated the counterfeits were cast in sand with a rough look, indistinct letters and that they were two pounds underweight.

Sentiments offered to the publick, for the coining of forty thousand pounds worth of silver. [S Clarke]. Edmund Burke (–).Reflections on the French Revolution.

The Harvard Classics. – Paras. –   Now suppose, that instead of the publick coinage, a patent had been granted to some private obscure person, for coining a proportionable quantity of copper in that kingdom, to what Mr.

Wood is preparing in this; and all of it at least five times below the intrinsick value: the current money of England is reckoned to be twenty millions; and ours. Whereas one William Wood, hardwareman, now or lately sojourning in the city of London, has, by many misrepresentations, procured a patent for coining a hundred and eight thousand pounds in copper halfpence for this kingdom; which is a sum five times greater than our occasions require: And whereas it is notorious, that the said Wood has coined.

A LETTER TO THE WHOLE PEOPLE OF IRELAND. There would be solemn engagements that we should "never be troubled with above forty thousand pounds in his coin, and all of the best and weightiest sort, for which we should only give our manufactures in exchange, and keep our gold and silver at home." in a book written for the public service.

Despite the numbers involved, the 20p 'mule' (slang for a faulty coin, based on the metaphor of a cross between a horse and a donkey) is worth a lot more than 20p, but not nearly as much as some of the bigger sums (thousands or even millions of pounds) at which they are occasionally offered for sale on auction websites.

Two hundred thousand pounds of money in those days amounts to about six hundred thousand pounds weight of silver, or about three millions of pounds of our present money.

Almost a bagatelle now, when referring to an army; but then a cow could be bought for five shillings, and an ox for six shillings and eight pence.

But Mr. Wood made his halfpence of such base metal, and so much smaller ones, that the brazier would hardly give you above a penny of good money for a shilling of his; so that this sum of £, in good gold and silver, must be given for trash that will not be worth above eight or nine thousand pounds.

According to a summary for the six years toderived from official sources and published in the annual Retrospecto of the Jornal do Commercio, of Rio de Janeiro, the values of the imports and exports for those years (exclusive of coin), reduced to pounds sterling at the average rate of exchange (or value of one milreis) for each year, were as follows: Nearly % of the exports of.

The amount of the last issue was,12, but the Assembly calculated on ^2, being lost, torn or defaced. In February,less than forty-seven years after the first emission of bills of credit by Massachusetts, that colony issued nine thousand pounds of a new tenor, of which one dollar was to be equal to three of the old, and which, after five years, was to be redeemed at par in silver and gold.

So, if we used the bed index to determine the value of pounds around to dollars today, we would calculate that 1 pound then was worth $4, today.
