This week I'm going with six more lines from Chapter One of Coins:
Gold poured out into the lid of the deposit box, a cascade of discs the size of a two pound coin.
"Oh my fucking God!" John croaked. "Is that money? For real?"
"Looks like it." Miles scooped up a few of the coins. Again, the wyvern featured on one side. On their reverse were crowned heads in profile with the legend, 'Richardus VI Princeps' or 'Marcus III Princeps'. If this was the old man's fantasy life, he'd taken it to a ridiculous degree, though it was highly unlikely the metal was truly gold.
