Show Notes

The jingle of coins in your pocket is a rare occurrence - now that we have moved to plastic money and e-currency. But coins hold a special place for the study of the past, and also for our nostalgia! 
Let's invest in the introduction of numismatics - the field of study of coins, with examples from India and Sri Lanka. 
We have with us Chitramala Tharangini, who is a numismatician, to discuss the nuances of Sri Lankan coinage. 

So, flip a coin, and let's get goin'!
