In this video, Ben Alsop, Curator of the Citi Money Gallery, talks about a love note found inscribed on the back of a coin in the Museum.
The inscription was simple: 'From Fred to Nellie, France 1916'. There was no additional information to identify who this couple might be. This is the tale of how Ben used a blog post to hunt down Fred and Nellie and uncover a 100-year-old love story.
