Comment from @f.shea.m:

History of our currency: Copper Maravedis Jamaica was not settled by the Spaniards until 1509, where it remained a poor country used chiefly as an agricultural supplier. It seems that the majority of the circulating coinage on the island at this time was made of copper. These coins, called maravedis, were very thin & light in weight & were apparently brought to Jamaica from Santo Domingo. Sometimes these coins were stamped with different marks such as an anchor or key, which was perhaps intended to vary their value according to the supply of money in the island. Although there was a small amount of gold on the; island, the #Taino Indians (the 1st inhabitants), used it; for decorative purposes rather than for trade, which was conducted by barter. The first units of exchange used by the #Spaniards (who came with Columbus in 1494) in their dealings with the Tainos, were items such as glass beads, trinkets, scissors & mirrors. #Jamaica #Jamaican #Jamaicans #Ja #TeamJamaica #876 #JamaicanHeritage #JamaicanHistory #JamaicanCulture #LearnAboutJamaica #ProudJamaican #TheJamaicanExperience #JamDung #JamaicansBeLike #JamaicaLandWeLove #LandOfWoodAndWater #JamRock #Yardie #Yawdie #BlackGoldandGreen #Maravedis #BlackGreenandGold #JamaicanPride
