FEATURED WEB SITE: INFLUENCE AND CHANGE IN COINAGE

This week's featured web site is a virtual exhibit of the
Fitzwilliam Museum Department of Coins and Medals titled
"Between East and West: Influence and Change in Coinage."

"Coinages have long been influenced by the movement of peoples,
by cultural interchanges, and by trade. Innovations in coinages,
from Ancient Greece to twentieth-century India, reflect these
influences and exchanges. At times these have led to radical
changes in the monetary system, but in other cases newcomers
have seamlessly adopted the established local currency."
