Golden Art, Part 4 - Domestic Propaganda And International Politics
Civil War! No, this is not about the North vs the South. This civil war happened much earlier, in the mid 1600's, and it pitted the Monarchy vs the people of England. Some of the world's biggest coins were made during this time. This would seem odd. Why, when resources were strained in a time of war, would giant coins be made? I find this one of the most fascinating times in history, and you will as well. The beautiful coins we will show and describe tell the story of this momentous time.
