Gold & Silver for the People: Circulating Precious Metals in Pre-Meiji Japan
by Joseph E. Boling
"Before machine-struck coinage was introduced in Japan (early 1870s), the metallic circulating media were cast copper and iron coins, hammered silver and gold ingots and sheets, and cast/hammered silver bullion. This presentation will show how the silver and gold monies most likely to be used by commoners were manufactured. It will cover the changes in those currencies during the 18th-19th centuries. Circulating counterfeits will also be treated."
All Things Rittenhouse
Len Augsburger writes:
As has been their tradition, numismatic authors Len Augsburger and Joel Orosz will hold forth from a one-day table (#1945) at the ANA on Wednesday, August 12. This year’s theme is “All Things Rittenhouse,” and a variety of documents, medals, and engravings will be exhibited, including a piece of contemporary correspondence which been off the market for several generations. Feel free to stop by any time on Wednesday.
Joel Orosz adds:
Rittenhouse Rye was originally a product of the Continental Distilling Company in Philadelphia. These days, the Continental Distilling Company makes its home in Bardstown Kentucky. Len and I lack the license necessary to serve sips of Rittenhouse Rye at our table, but the conversation will be just as good as if we were in a bar!
