Gresham’s law is a monetary principle stating that “bad money drives out good.” Gresham’s law comes into operation when a new coin (bad money) is assigned the same face value as a superior older coin (good money).In such case, the new coin will be used in circulation while the old coin will be hoarded and thus disappear from circulation.
