This essay shows that the growth of the economy of New Granada during the Eighteenth Century made an important impact on its political center, SantafÃ© de Bogota, at least until 1808. Such prosperity was the result of a process of specialization and division of labor between different regions of the new kingdom, derived from the dynamics of gold mining that gave a strong impulse to SantafÃ©'s economy as a trade center for the handicraft production of Eastern Colombia and the fertile savanna surrounding it, which was a net food exporter. The Mint established in SantafÃ©, which was a de facto monopoly, attracted merchants and miners who established there a center for the exchange of gold dust for coin.
