In the early nineteenth century, there was very little money of a small denomination in circulation. The effect was to stifle trade, so from 1804 enterprising traders began to issue their own tokens for small denominations, known as 'card money' . Some issued more that they could redeem. However, the biggest problem was of forgery. The situation came into such disrepute that Tynwald passed the Bankers' Notes Act on 23rd May 1817 to put an end to small demonination card money.

We look once again at translations into Manx made by Neddy Beg Hom Ruy of Aesop's Fables, which were published by Karl Roeder in 1901.
