The 600 year charts are adjusted by various inflation measures. Most use Consumer Price Index (CPI). Unfair, abused, and inconsistent. See: http://www.ShadowStats.com Reports CPI consistently. Shockingly consistent.
Create your own price index: DFarrell-Price-Index based on what you buy. Here is an example:
The colonial dollar was a weight in silver or gold. History is confusing... Often, on purpose. Referred to as the Spanish Dollar, it was mostly minted in Mexico for several hundred years.
If you wish to keep it simple, no fees... Just save your Nickels. They are worth more than their melt value in metal. They cost well over 5¢ to mint. If I am wrong, you still have a Nickel.
