Reprinted from The Numismatist. From the Introduction- "It is said that throughout our history pioneers have had many and varied problems. The Mormons were no exception. They faced and overcame a multitude of adversities that some other groups didn't have to face- religious hatred being the greatest. But among other things that a group as large as the Mormons had to contend with was the establishment of a medium of exchange. This may seem of slight significance now, but for almost half a century it remained a matter of deep concern to the people who finally settled in the Great Salt Lake Valley of northern Utah. It wasn't until after 1908 that this monetary problem was satisfactorily solved."
