Making a Nation: Money, image and power in Tudor and Stuart England

Tue 26 March 2019 - Sun 30 June 2019

Fitzwilliam Museum

The major dynastic, political and cultural changes that occurred in England under the Tudors and Stuarts are traced in this exhibition. The money and medals of this 250-year period provide a fascinating insight into broader developments in artistic expression, monarchy, nationhood, and trade in a rapidly expanding world. Coins and medals acted as powerful agents in conveying the official image of the king or queen and commemorating the important events of the day. They also reveal the changing role of money and economic experience through periods of religious conflict, civil war, exploration and the union of the kingdoms of England and Scotland.
