Description:

Open registrations for the XXVII Seminar on monetary history of the Crown of Aragon dedicated this year to the Carolingian currency and its foundational role in the emissions of Barcelona and the counties that later on became Catalunya Vella. Charlemagne and his successors imposed a new monetary system based on coinage in fine silver. This pieces were integrated in a count currency system that allowed them to put a price on any good and that lasts on the Principality until the nineteenth century.

And why this subject? Because in 2014 the Ajuntament de Barcelona bought one a coin from Barcelona from the reign of Louis the Pious and because, that same year, the Ministerio de Cutltura, Educación y Deporte acquired another coin from Barcelona corresponding to the reign of Charlemagne. This second piece it’s been deposited by the Museo Arqueológico Nacional to the Museu Nacional to expose it in the exhibition room of the Cabinet, while the first one was already exposed in the Museu d’Història of the city in 2015.

This acquisitions, knowing how rare the emissions of the Carolingian counties of Hispanic March are, offers an opportunity to a more direct study and divulge of this heritage and its historian significance.

This course is recognized by the Departament d’Ensenyament of the Generalitat de Catalunya as an educational activity for teachers.
