Small change: bronze/copper coins from Antiquity to 19th c.
Tuesday 2 October 2012

A special Round Table on “small change” (bronze/copper coins from Antiquity to 19th c.) at the Ecole Normale Supérieure (amphitéâtre Rataud), Paris, (May 13-14).

The idea is to analyze the importance of the small coins such as copper, bronze, billon in the development of the economy and the relations between the development of this coinage and the general economic development (including relations with banknotes, railways, minting systems, etc.) from Antiquity to 19th century. Papers concerning all the monetary systems are welcome, from Antiquity to 19th c., from all the regions of the world, but must concern subsidiary coinage (mainly copper, bronze, tin, zinc, etc. coins).

This workshop will be followed by a second workshop in Madrid at the end of the same week (May 16-17). The Madrid one will be focused on the transfers of precious metal from 16th to 19th c. see Madrid workshop presentation.

The entrance is free (at the Ecole Normale Supérieure, 45 rue d’Ulm, Paris, amphithéâtre Rataud; May 13 afternoon and 14 morning), but register in sending a mail to G. Depeyrot.
