HOG PENNY

STERLING SILVER BERMUDA ICONS
Hog Money was the earliest British Colony currency, and, as written by Governor Nathaniel Butler in his 1620 account The History of Bermuda’s or Summer Islands, was given its name because of it. The copper piece had a hog stamped upon it on one side (due to the great number of wild swine found upon the Islands at their first discovery in 1609 by the shipwrecked crew of the Sea Venture) and was termed by the people hogge money. The coinage included the Shilling, Sixpence, Thrupence, and Twopence.
