International trade and interest in investment overseas led to the infamous South Sea Bubble of , where the general public in Britain, who had invested in ‘shares’ in the Company of Merchants of Great Britain Trading to the South Seas, realized they had lost their hard-earned money in the first stock market overvaluation and subsequent.

The South-Sea Bubble. At length corruption, like a general flood, Did deluge all, and avarice creeping on, Spread, like a low-born mist, and hid the sun. Statesmen and patriots plied alike the stocks, Peeress and butler shared alike the box; And judges jobbed, and bishops bit the town, And mighty dukes packed cards for half-a-crown.

Another bank was proposed to counteract the Land Bank. It was called the Specie Bank, and was to issue,£, in notes redeemable in fifteen years, in silver, at 20s. per oz. Both went into operation, but, in , Parliament declared the old Joint Stock Companies' Act, passed after the South Sea bubble (), to be of force in the colonies.
