The heritage building in Panjim, ‘Casa da Moeda’, functioned as a Mint from 1834 onward. This year is the 175th anniversary of that milestone. Collating information about it has been a challenge. Dr. Dias has recently made a trip to Lisbon and liaised with ‘Casa da Moeda’ there. In his talk he shares what he has uncovered.
Dr. Luis Dias is a physician, musician and history enthusiast. He has recently relocated to Goa, having lived and worked in the UK for a decade, and is currently pursuing his love of history, music, writing and photography.
