Governments worldwide are issuing more and more paper money; they call it QE or Quantitative Easing. We call it making our money worth less and less and if you really need an example, how about Germany in the early 1920s? At that time money became of so little value that someone saw a basket of banknotes, they left the notes and stole the basket!
In Canada during the reign of King George V we have an excellent example of what inflation can do.
We have the Canadian Large Cent of King George V, issued 1911-1920. Then in 1920 they reduced the size greatly and kept this smaller size until 1936.
We offer the Large and Small sized 'Penny' or One Cent coins of King George V, so you can show your friends what inflation can do to coins. Let’s hope it doesn’t happen here…
