World History Through Numismatics
The Carlos Alberto Verdura
"The World's leaders and their coins"
This collection reflects on Carlos Alberto Verdura and his love for coins. Although I am simply the caretaker of a collection that was built with a love for coins second to none, I been given the honor of organizing and maintaining the colection. Although they belong to his Grandchildren and future generations to enjoy and build upon as was his wish, we all hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
As you can realize this is work in progress. Only the countries with a number of coins are done. If you try and go to a country that is not done yet it will return you to the home page. Images may be used with credit to the Verdura Family Collection.
The primary goal of the collection is to have one or more coins from each ruler or historic era under whom coins were issued. History tid bits will be provided to assist on your history studies for each with links whenever possible. Help in this area is highly encouraged and appreciated.
It is very important to keep in mind that history is written by humans, with opinions. It is encouraged that you make your own interpretation of history as you study it. Study with an open mind and make your own conclusions!
