My reason for picking the Pine Tree Shilling? I'm completely unfamiliar with Colonial coinage, and that's the only one I've heard of.

Yes the pine tree shilling is certainly the most well known, and there are even more desirable coins - the NE and Willow Tree - but those are astronomically expensive. The ones I posted are attainable by mere mortals. Thank you for the reply!

If only one, then the Pine Tree Shilling hands down. It is THE iconic Massachusetts silver coin!

Exactly. This is easily one of the top 10 coins in my collection.

I said the Pine tree shilling since I am a big fan of the design.
