This display ‘Crowns and Ducats: Shakespeare's Money and Medals’ looks at the role of coins and medals in Shakespeare’s works and his world. Shakespeare's plays have many references to money. As well as the coins themselves, Shakespeare also drew on the language of reckoning and accounting, and of weighing and measuring the quality of money, often using this metaphorically to talk about people's characters.
