The History of Pirate Coins

Thanks to the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, pirates today are seen as cool, rum drinking, peg legged, romantic scoundrels. In reality, pirates were free men and women who lived lives of autonomy and adventure. They directed their ships where they wished and stayed at tropical islands for as long as they wanted. In a world of rules and regulations, pirates sought independence and freedom from the powers that be. The Golden Age of Piracy reigned between 1650 to 1725, when rules that regulated the life of ordinary people were much stricter than the ones we face today. Back in the 17th and 18th centuries, there was only one way out of a peasant's life of starvation. The dream of unimaginable wealth and freedom was found in a life of piracy.
