Coins in fiction are an occasional E-Sylum topic. I came across this account of a Roman coin in an episode of the soap opera General Hospital.
New General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that the cufflink that Valerie Spencer (Brytni Sarpy) found is the key to this case and will soon crack the GH serial killer investigation wide open with the help of Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner). Looks like the angel of death is finally close to getting caught.
When Valerie found the silver coin cufflink in Hamilton Finn’s (Michael Easton) lab, it seemed like a simple case of lost and found – but that was a huge find. That’s why the GH serial killer went to all the trouble to come and knock Valerie out and steal it back rather than leave it.
The cufflink that Valerie found is a big deal. It was made from an ancient Roman coin with the head of Julius Caesar on it. So why is that important? Back in January, Andre Maddox (Anthony Montgomery) gave Jordan Ashford (Vinessa Antoine) a gift.
As the current leading suspect in the killer case, the gift Andre gave the PCPD chief and what he said when he gave it to her are critically important. Andre gave Jordan a small statue of a Mayan jaguar and told her, “Archaeology is a hobby of mine…”
Ancient Roman coin cufflinks definitely sound like something that an amateur archaeologist would own. Plus, Andre is always in a suit and dress shirt which is required with cufflinks. Most of the other potential suspects dress like that. Franco (Roger Howarth) wears mostly t-shirts.
Got all that? It looks like a prop coin rather than a real one, but still it's nice to see a numismatic thread in a TV plot.
