Political Coins, Medals and Tokens in the Eighteenth Century – 21 November

21st November 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

£8.00 – £18.50

Unfortunately, this talk has been cancelled.

This talk will examine a range of coins, tokens and medals from the 18th century, exploring how Georgians used these objects to express political sentiments. The production of low-denomination coins was left to private manufacturers, meaning that anyone with the means could produce tokens to circulate as currency. As they were shared in the local area, they are brilliant artefacts of local history, reflecting the concerns and interests of society at the time.
