    The above article also references another article by Oliver Hoover, "The Real Forgotten Coins Of North America: Islamic Gold, Silver, And Copper From The Eastern Trade" in the Colonial Newsletter, December 2013.

    It's on the Newman Numismatic Portal at:

    Few Islamic coins from the Colonial period have been found but they are mentioned in writings of the period.
