Money making; stamping and milling the disks and weighing the finished coins, 20th century

Money making; stamping and milling the disks and weighing the finished coins, 20th century. When the disks have been cut they are 'marked' (top left), that is, the edge is slightly raised to protect the coin from abrasion, then washed in acid, cleaned in sawdust and dried by hot air. The disks are next stamped (top right). Finally the coins are weighed (bottom) in a room full of balances that are inspected daily. The coins fall automatically into one of three slots; heavy, light or correct.

'Richard causing the gold and jewels to be weighed in his presence'. Artist: Unknown

'Richard causing the gold and jewels to be weighed n his presence'. Richard I (1157-1199) was King of England from 1189 to 1199. He was known as Richard the Lionheart, or C?ur de Lion, even before his accession because of his military reputation. He spent little of his reign in England, setting out on the Third Crusade in 1190, and from 1194 onwards fighting to regain territories in France. He remains one of the very few Kings of England remembered by reputation, not number. From Cassell's Illustrated History of England.
