Joseph Wright: Engraving American Independence


Multi-Media Summary

Speaker: P. Scott Rubin. This lecture was a part of the 2023 Coinage of the Americas Conference on September 22-23, 2023. Sponsored by Resolute Americana Collection and the Stack Family, this conference explored 18th & 19th century design and production. Some of the most beautiful and iconic coins and paper currencies were made during this period, some inspired by millennia-old coins and others serving as inspirations for centuries to come. The artists and engravers who created those designs were recognized as masters of their craft in their own time, and are now hailed as luminaries by present-day numismatists. In addition to their artistic contributions, many of them also had a hand in the technological improvements for numismatic production during this period.
