We started out with 13 colonies in the northeast, the rest was considered 'frontier' land. The colonies were where the more modern, civilized folks lived and thrived. Farmers, ranchers, and such, didn't carry a lot of money, often traded stuff that was needed, in exchange for stuff they wanted. Coin and cash, are symbols, not very tasty or useful by themselves. Took a while, before everyone was a short walk away from some place to spend money.
