Holey Dollars & Dumps of Prince Edward Island
Faulkner, C. The Holey Dollars and Dumps of Prince Edward Island. 2012. 382 pages, illustrations in the text. Cloth, jacket. This is the first book-length study to be devoted to Canada's most exotic and celebrated colonial-era coin, The Holey Dollar of Prince Edward Island and its accompanying Dump. With its basis in twenty years of research in international archives, libraries, and private and institutional collections, from as far afield as Charlottetown and Puerto Rico, Vancouver and London, this book uncovers the origins and history of a coin which has been shrouded in mystery for two hundred years.
