Brother can you spare a schneckentaler from Zug?
Numismatic research takes us down some strange byways, for instance, did you know that the snail has been regarded as a symbol of love? Perhaps like me you not only didn't know that but also had never heard of theschneckentaler from Zug, a coin upon which the snail image appears ... perhaps only to fill what would have been an empty space!
