Silver surface enrichment of silver–copper alloys : a limitation for the analysis of ancient silver coins by surface techniques / L. Beck ... [et al.]

Abstract:

The surface enrichment of archaeological silver–copper alloys has been recognized for many years. However, the origin of this enrichment is not well defined and many hypotheses have been put forward to account for this behaviour: segregation of the components during casting, deliberate thermal and/or chemical post-treatment, abrasion or corrosion. Among the hypotheses mentioned above, we have focused our study on the first step of coin manufacturing. Replications of silver–copper standards of various compositions ranging from 30% to 80% Ag, reflecting the composition of silver blanks, have been produced. Metallographic examination, PIXE and SEM–EDS have been used for the characterization of each sample. A model of the direct enrichment has been established. This model allows us to propose a relationship between the surface composition and the silver content of the core. Comparison with data of Roman coins from the Roman site of Châteaubleau (France) and from the literature and consequences for the analyses of ancient coins by surface methods are presented.

Echoes from the past : tracing the production techniques as a method for distinguishing genuine coins from counterfeits / Claudio Botrè

Schweizerische Numismatische Revue 88 (2009) p. 299-303, pl. 23-24

Abstract:

The specific differences between struck coins, cast coins and coins produced by press- fusion lend themselves to distinguishing modern counterfeits from ancient coins. The article discusses these processes from a scientific point of view and emphasizes the results of non- destructive analyses of a genuine aureus of C. Iulius Caesar as opposed to a modern counterfeit aureus of Sextu Pompeius.

Abstract:

The lead contents can vary greatly in a series of bronze coins belonging to a same type. This variation maybe due to changes in the bronze composition or to lead segregation during the casting process. A limestone mould for casting bronze blank was discovered at the Gallic-Roman site of Châteaubleau (France) and was used as a starting point to study lead segregation in bronze blanks. Bronze blanks were cast in a modern mould similar to the one found at Châteaubleau using ancient methods. Our experiments show that the variation in lead contents of the blanks is random.
