The process of making money
The first national coinage was begun in 1822, and the decimal system was adopted in 1863.
At last that final expedient of weak governments, the debasing of the coinage, led to a crisis.
J52), king of the Ostrogoths, was chosen king after the death of his uncle Ildibad in 541, his real name being, as is seen from the coinage issued by him, Baduila.
For the coinage see NUMISMATICS.
In the election of 1896 all the parties in the state declared in favour of the free and unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1.
