Discover Sir Isaac Newton's economic paper on money...

It was written by Isaac Newton as Master of the Royal Mint.

You will find Isaac Newton's views on the economic matters.

Here is the excerpt of the paper...

"Gold is over-valued in England in Proportion to Silver, by at least 9d. or 10d. in a Guinea, and this Excess of Value tends to increase the Gold Coins, and diminish the Silver Coins of this Kingdom; and the same will happen in Ireland by the like over-valuing of Gold in that Kingdom. But it's convenient that the Coins should bear the same Proportion to one another in both Kingdoms, to prevent all fraudulent Practices in those that Trade between them, and that the Proportion be ascertained by Proclamation."
