Georges Depeyrot of the Centre de Recherches Historiques in Paris writes:
We are now finishing an application for a European numismatic network on
European monetary unification, from antiquity to modern times (EMU).
You will find a short video presentation of the project in the
The video is very well produced, and makes a case for the proposed study of the many and varied monetary unification attempts through the ages. Coins and numismatic literature provide some visuals. I took the accompanying images from the video - above is Georges, and below is one of the numismatic books.
From "an excellent Mexican restaurant in Amsterdam", Georges writes:
The volume is a coin changer book printed in Anwerpen during the 17th century. I put a .pdf of it on the Moneta web site. Go to moneta.be, then e-papers, then "monnaies modernes", then the volume is Carte Verdussen.
Titled "Carte OV Liste", the book was published in 1627.
