NEWSPAPER ARTICLE PROFILES DAVE GREENHALGH (GRUNAL MONETA)

[The Hunts Post of the U.K. profiled a gentleman speaking
at a local society January 11 about early moneyers.  -Editor]

Dave Greenhalgh, also known as Grunal Moneta, from Lincolnshire
will be at St Peter's Church Hall, March, at 7.30 pm, to
talk about his passion for coins.

Richard Munns, the society's vice chairman, said: "Ever
entertaining, Dave, who has immersed himself in the life
of a moneyer of the past, is one of the few people around
the country who actually makes a full-time living pursuing
what was once, for him, just a hobby.

"Such is his reputation that he is consulted by the British
Museum on matters of numismatics and is also seen by the
'moneyers' at the Royal Mint as one of the few people
outside their closed world that they can converse with
about 'work'."

"He spends the first few weeks of January at home, but from
then on he could appear anywhere, including regularly at the
British Museum and at other museums, castles, heritage sites,
village fetes, re-enactment events - basically at any kind
of historical public and educational event."

Mr Munns said Dave has extensive (almost encyclopaedic)
knowledge of coins from Britain and around the world and
is in fact the world expert on the medieval 'half-groat'.

"He produces for sale, authentic-style hammered coins,
starting with Greek through to Celtic (650BC), all the way
to the English Civil War (1660AD) and everything in between,"
added Mr Munns.
