Coins & Currency
Stories of the English Coinage
This is a one hour PowerPoint presentation that tells the story of coinage from the earliest coins some 2700 years ago, via the first coins to circulate in Britain 2000 years ago, up to the latest post-decimalization coinage. The talk illustrates how coin design is not only a product of the then current technology and economy, but also the art, culture, language and politics of their time.
The presentation consists of some 40 "slides" including coin photographs, maps, and illustrations of coining techniques (these supplied by the Royal Mint). I supply all the necessary projection equipment.
