Psychologists on coins
« on: October 25, 2011, 10:59:10 AM »
Not so many psychologists can be found on coins. I know only three of them.

1) Ivan Petrovich Pavlov (1849-1936)

Haven't found any more on the doctor side, but here is one from the patient side: to the right on this Spanish gold excellente is Juana loca, mad Joan, officially Juana de Castilla (1479-1555). Her mental illness was recently cured by revisionist historians. It didn't do her much good, so long after she'd died. ;)

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Another royal nutcase: Charles II of Spain, the result of generations of Habsburg inbreeding. The engraver has made the very best of a face ravaged by mental illness.

He fits right in this thread, but not in the rest of the world: king Charles the mad of France. The ghostly face on this double d'or looks even weirder when you know about the mental health of the person on the coin.

Vincent van Gogh, mad, not a royal, still made it on a coin.
