If you lived in medieval England, you could be put to death for the crime of
"clipping", that much is TRUTH...
Clipping was the act of removing small slivers of precious metal from the
edges of gold and silver coins. This practice has existed since ancient
times; many Roman coins are found heavily clipped. The ridges, or reeding,
found on the edges of modern coins were originally designed as a measure to
combat clipping. A similar crime was called "sweating," in which coins were
shaken inside a bag made of coarse cloth. Bits of metal would wear off which
could be recovered when the bag was later burned.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
