Matthew Boulton and the Soho Mint

I have just come across this website:

http://www.sohomint.info/index.html

"We are here with a thoroughly modern web site to celebrate the achievements of Matthew Boulton who died two hundred years ago in August 1809.

But a modern website is no anachronism; Matthew Boulton was at the leading edge of technology and innovation in his own time.

So here, as a tribute to a great man, we will look at the Soho Mint: how it was established and worked, and what it produced.

The world's first thoroughly modern money."

Full of fascinating information, especially on one of my favourites - the Barbadoes pennies:

Not ancient coins, but well worth a look. I have also added a link on my "delicious" numismatic page.
