Numismatic podcast launched by ANS

The American Numismatic Society (ANS) recently launched a new monthly podcast called The Planchet.

“Recorded for non-specialists and professionals alike, The Planchet shares conversations by numismatists and other scholars about the stories and histories of currency and medals,” explains the show’s Apple Podcasts listing, which adds new episodes will air each month.

The inaugural 53-minute episode, published March 27, features a conversation between Jesse Kraft, an assistant curator with the ANS, and Andrew Reinhard, who’s the society’s director of publications. They discuss how Americans spent foreign currency before the Coinage Act of 1857.

Published April 21, the second 69-minute episode features Lucia Carbone, another ANS assistant curator, and Katie Cupello, an expert on Mark Antony and Roman portraiture, as they talk about Antony, his many wives, political iconography and his program of coinage in the Roman East.
