Welcome to the latest installments of Smaulgld’s History of Silver (You Tube playlist)

The Birth of Global Trade and a Global Currency.

The town of Potosi in Bolivia the site of the world’s largest silver finds in the 16th century.

A high quality piece of eight or Spanish Dollar began to be produced around 1600 and weighed 0.883125 troy ounces and was made of 93% fine silver.

The Piece of Eight was use in commerce in the “New World”, Spain and for international trade because it was a trusted standard unit of account.

The Piece of Eight was trusted not because of the promise of a government but because of the standard weight and silver purity.

The Piece of Eight was considered Legal Tender in the United States until 1857, despite the U.S. having a functioning mint since 1792.

The Piece of Eight was accepted in international trade well into the mid to late 1800’s.
