All the Money in the World

A fascinating and unique overview of international currency, All the Money in the World vividly chronicles how political, cultural, and economic forces have shaped the development of coinage and paper currency from antiquity through today. Douglas Mudd, the Curator of the ANA (American Numismatic Association) Money Museum, describes the extraordinary diversity and beauty of monetary imagery — an important source of cultural and historical information. This gorgeously illustrated and immensely entertaining book explains the origin and spread of coinage and paper currency. Ranging from the islands of Micronesia to Russia to the United States, All the Money in the World reveals the underlying connections between numismatic imagery and history.
Appealing to both experienced numismatists and novices alike, All the Money in the World provides a visually stunning and informative look at money’s vital role in shaping both our past and present — and influencing our hopes and dreams for the future.
