Long Table 82. Coins in Shakespeare

Long Table 82. 
Coins in Shakespeare

Friday, February 25
1:00 pm ET

Join ANS Member Michael Markowitz for a merry numismatic tour through the works of William Shakespeare. From drachmas to ducats to sixpence, Shakespeare used coins as a device to relate to Elizabethan audiences. Markowitz will reference coins mentioned in the plays, tell us about when and why they were minted, and offer context for the modern audience. 

ANS Members only. A link will be sent to members the day of the event.
