CHICHESTER 2007: CURRENCIES IN CRISIS

Yesterday (Saturday 7 July 2007) was the Summer Meeting of the British
and Royal Numismatic Societies, held in Chichester and titled "Currencies
in Crisis".  I wasn't aware of the conference in time for later week's
newsletter, but it's worth noting.  Perhaps one of our readers can give
us a report next week.   The following description is from the British
Numismatic Society web site:

"This year’s will be a day of lectures examining the origins and impact
of crises that have affected British and world currencies. From major
debasements to abortive reforms, from the aftermath of wars to the decline
of empires, currencies have suffered and failed and been rejuvenated.
The changing fortunes of monetary systems have themselves also visited
periods of economic and social disruption on the countries and regions
within which they operated.

"The lectures will span numismatics from the Roman world to the
twentieth century. The speakers are Paul Cavill of Merton College
Oxford (16th-century debasement), Kevin Clancy (17th and 18th centuries)
and Graham Dyer (20th-century currency) of The Royal Mint; Professor
Edmund King of the University of Sheffield (English coinage 1138-1153),
Barbara Mears of Spink (early colonial Indian coinage), and Sam Moorhead 
(Roman currency) and Helen Wang (Tang dynasty coinage) of The British
Museum."
