Newton and Counterfeiter

A fascinating interview with Professor Tom Levenson, the author of the book "Newton and Counterfeiter". Tom discusses Isaac Newton's time as the head of the Royal Mint, his introduction of the Gold Standard, the great recoining, as well as his scientific discoveries in general. A must listen for all Gold and Silver Bugs. The interview is conducted by the consummate science journalist and author, Robyn Williams. Listen to The Science Show interview here 

For those new to The Science Show, Robyn Williams has hosted the show, which is broadcast every Saturday afternoon on ABC Radio National, since 1975 which has to be close to a world record for the one radio show with the same host for 38 years!
