Nuclear methods and laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry : how can these methods contribute to the study of ancient coinage? / Maryse Blet-Lemarquand ... [et al.]

Abstract:

The Centre Ernest-Babelon developed and applied two different nuclear methods using a cyclotron for numismatic studies: Proton Activation Analysis (PAA) and Fast Neutron Activation Analysis (FNAA). At the beginning of the 1970s PAA was developed to study ancient gold coinage and in the 1980s FNAA was improved to determine non-destructively the contents of the major, minor and trace elements in silver and copper alloys coins. These two nuclear methods were successfully used to study numismatic and historical issues covering all periods and geographical areas. But they present some drawbacks. Therefore a complementary method was recently developed for the non-destructive analysis of archaeological gold and silver artefacts: Laser Ablation Inductively Coupled Mass Spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS). Basic quantitative analysis and depth profile analysis are performed. Comparison between these different methods are established. The capabilities of these methods are illustrated with numismatic examples: the provenance study of the Kushan minted gold, the Carolingian silver coinage, the identification of some bronze coins from the hoard of Olbia.

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:

L’étude de nombreux monnayages en bronze au plomb a montré que les teneurs en plomb pouvaient varier dans des proportions non négligeables pour des monnaies appartenant à un même ensemble (même type, même série).

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.
