The 1920s: Crisis and innovation

(Tuesday) (Sunday)

The 1920s was a time of unprecedented change, after the trauma of the First World War. In America and Western Europe there was great prosperity and artistic innovation, with the new Art Deco style. At the same time there was economic and political crisis in Germany and Central Europe. In Russia the new dawn of Revolution led to Stalin’s terror. All of this can be seen in coins, medals and banknotes of the 1920s.
