Symposium explores links between money and war

“Money, War and More” is the theme of the Second Annual Numismatics Symposium presented by Nickle Galleries and the Calgary Numismatic Society (CNS). “The Money, War and More symposium examines the interplay between money, power and the capacity to wage war, starting in the ancient era and progressing through to the present,” explains Marina Fischer, curator of numismatics at Nickle Galleries at the University of Calgary. “It shows the crucial importance of economic power as the basic underpinning of all strategic considerations and strategies.
