The E-Sylum: Volume 12, Number 44, November 1, 2009, Article 19

ERRATA FROM LAST WEEK'S ISSUE

Jeff Starck's article on Google Books starts on page 92 of the November 2, 2009 issue of COIN World, not page 2 as reported. Sorry for the typo!

JP Cota pointed out a glaring geographical error in a headline last week. The Casa da Moeda is not in Lisbon, Portugal, but Panjim, Goa, India. Oops! He writes:

Casa da Moeda is the Portuguese equivalent of 'Mint House'. There is an equivalent Mint House of the same (typical) name in Lisbon, but this particular one is a different building altogether! :-) The Casa da Moeda institution in Goa moved places/buildings from 1510 ownwards over the centuties, but stayed in the capital city Panjim till it ceased operations. Thus, these celebrations are of the official Mint House currently owned by Dr Luis Dias family in Goa and buildingwise, there is no direct correlation with the Mint House in Portugal.
