    She couldn't keep up with the quality issue of the Royal Mint, probably the most technically advanced mint of the day. But to be historically correct, they strangled her first, then they burned her.

    I own an American counterfeit of a British token that circulated in the colonies about the same time Catherine and Hugh were in operation. It's a very crude issue. The problem with coin counterfeiters of that time is that they did not have the technical ability to create dies and strike with enough pressure to make something comparable to a mint issue. Yet I note that the counterfeiters still made SOMETHING that even no deity has been able to duplicate - illegal tender.
