Henri Cernuschi

Cernuschi, Henri (chārnōˈskē) [key], 1821–96, Italian politician and economist. A strong republican, he was a leader in the Milan revolt of 1848 in support of Giuseppe Garibaldi. In 1850 he went to France, where he became a director of the Bank of France. Cernuschi vigorously advocated bimetallism and is said to have coined the word. His writings include many pamphlets on the subject, notably Silver Vindicated (1876).
