COIN INFORMATION:

These early pieces were used in the US after they were so unpopular in Ireland (because of their relative way to its contemporaries). The excess was sent to the US and used as coinage during colonial times.

INTERESTING FACT:

Dean Swift (aka Jonathan Swift, author of Gulliver’s Travels and Dean of St. Patrick’s, Dublin), anonymously penned the ‘Drapier’s Papers’, a series of pamphlets highlighting the inequity of this inferior coinage and aroused public opinion against it.
