A History of Britain: Fate of Empire 1776-2001 v. 3: The Fate of Empire 1776-2000

'While Britain was once wasting an empire, it used to be discovering itself. ..

She then checked all his other $100 bills and said that she thought they were all counterfeits. She called the police. Panicked, the 43-year-old Lipin called a friend who was a lawyer and, following his advice, called the police himself and reported the counterfeits. Terrified that he would be seen as trying to pass bogus notes, he wanted to make it very clear that he was a victim.

The card money introduced in New France in 1685 to alleviate a gold shortage was an easy target for counterfeiters. Penalties for counterfeiting it ranged from flogging to banishment, or even hanging. In 1690, Pierre Malidor, a surgeon, was found guilty of counterfeiting and passing card money. 26 Cartoonist George Cruikshank claimed to have sketched this satirical protest “note” in ten minutes in 1819 after seeing a woman hanged for passing a bogus note. The features of a regular Bank of England note are replaced with gruesome images of skulls, a noose, hanging bodies, and a horrifying Britannia gobbling her children.
