In the 1850s, Antioquia started showing significant commercial development resulting mostly from gold-mining expansion. New mining sites generated new markets and trade networks that joined small localities with cities and foreign markets. Based on the archives of commercial houses of the time, this essay contributes to studies of 19th century monetary issues, describing different forms of money placed into circulation that facilitated the exchange of goods and services in this mining economy.
