A governmental charge for coining bullion.
By James Champlin Fernald
By Nuttall, P.Austin.
A charge levied on bullion brought by private individuals to the mint to be coined, which is effected by giving back rather less in coin than was received in bullion, only sufficient in amount to cover the expense-in England the coin age of bullion is generally done at the public expense, but there is a large seigniorage levied on silver and copper currencies; formerly a specific tax on bullion as well as on silver and copper coinage, forming a branch of the royal revenue; acknowledgment of power.
By Stormonth, James, Phelp, P. H.
