To Counterfeit is Death is a seldom enforced threat which is seen on many of the bills issued during our British Colonial and Confederation eras. Ray Williams will be discussing the economic climate making paper money necessary, the counterfeiting of bills and the anti-counterfeiting measures taken, the famous (and not so famous) colonists involved with paper money, and interesting stories involving some of the money being exhibited. Examples of the paper currency discussed will be made available for close examination.

Money Talks: Numismatic Conversations is supported by an ANS endowment fund generously given in honor of Dr. Vladimir Clain-Stefanelli and Mrs. Elvira Clain-Stefanelli.
