Reynards Cave 76087206_coins
A coin is hammered, and beaten and shaped to be carried, pursed, pocketed and walleted. A single coin might be polished by the hands of centuries, traded, treasured, stolen and hoarded. The old coins in our old hoards probably started life like the coins Dave from Grunal Moneta will strike on his travelling mint this weekend, so come and watch the beginning of a story that might run for another 2,000 years

Dave is bringing his travelling mint to Buxton Museum, so come and find out how to ‘make’ money (and even help), the beginning of a story that might run for another 2,000 years……
