Emperor Hadrian Times

Did they create the method of control or did they inherit it?
Emperor Hadrian inherited the idea of coins from china , although he changed the design by not putting holes and putting Hadrian, himself on the coins.
Did they make any significant changes to it?
At the time emperor Hadrian’s coins looked little crooked and it looked very uneven. In those days, the coins weren’t like the Shi Huang Di times, (hole in the middle). If we compare the coins from now days, they look more ancient than now days because of the crooks and there is the emperor Hadrian drawn on it. In nowadays, our coin has the Hong Kong national flower on it and the amount.
Was this method violent or nonviolent?
I think this was a nonviolent method because it helped the country to make the currency much more convenient and they helped getting the country to use the same currency and stopped lots of wars because of the different types of trade/ currencies.
How effective was this method?
I think this method was very helpful, not for the emperor only but also for the people. If this didn't happen, then everybody would have used different types of currency which would just make things very confusing!
How important do you think was it for maintaining power and control?
I think this was pretty important because in the Hadrian times, the coin had his face drew on it. I think that in the Romans times, they drew the emperor’s face.I also think that it is important for peace from the wars/conflicts about trading/currency.
