“‘The Great Recoinage’ controversy of the 1690s was the impetus for Locke’s writings on mercantile and monetary theory. In the 1660s Sir Josiah Child had argued that the legal rate of interest should be lowered. It was still a topic for political discussion in the early 1690s: Child was still pressing the argument, and was supported by London merchants. Locke however defended a legal rate of interest but refused to fix it below the current rates. This was the occasion for his publishing Some Considerations of the Consequences of the Lowering of Interest and Raising the Value of Money in 1692. When William Lowndes, Secretary of the Treasury, proposed in 1695 to raise the nominal value of coins, Locke slightly revised Some Considerations and also published two further pamphlets, Short Considerations, and Further Considerations. At that time gold and silver coins had a value equivalent to their metal content, representing nothing but their silver or gold quantity. Locke rejected devaluation, basing his argument on this ‘commodity theory’ of money. He considered ‘raising of the denomination or the increase of alloy’ to be debasement and fraud” (Yolton).
“Locke’s second major essay, Further Considerations Concerning Raising the Value of Money (1695), while it reiterated many of his earlier arguments, was mostly concerned with the issue of recoinage. Locke took issue with a proposal to devalue the official coinage by 20 per cent and argued strongly for recoining at the old standard the currently circulating coins debased by clipping and normal wear and tear. Money, Locke argued was equivalent to gold and silver. People contracted for gold and silver and a government stamp was simply an assurance of the specie content of official coins. Hence, a devaluation would only confuse trade and cause an increase in prices denominated in terms of pounds and shillings” (The New Palgrave).
