I went to a supermarket, put a one pound coin into a shopping trolley, and took the shopping trolley back to my studio. In the studio, I took out the same one pound coin, went to the same supermarket, and took a second shopping trolley with me. I repeated this process over and over again. I traveled to and from New Cross Road again and again, in and out of the same supermarket again and again. In total, I took seven trolleys, and the same one pound coin travelled through each shopping trolley. Money exchanges for a commodity and a commodity exchanges for money. Therefore, the circulation of commodities is complete.
