Change of Crown, Change of Currency


Queen Elizabeth II, who died in September after ruling for over seven decades, had one of the most recognizable faces on the planet, with her likeness featured on millions of banknotes and coins across the globe. Having been the first monarch to grace paper currency, her passing left many Britons questioning what would become of British banknotes once her successor ascends the throne. This case covers the issue and asks students to discuss what will become of British currency and the power that printed currency has in contributing to a national identity.
