Numismatics

The numismatics collection includes coins, bank notes and tokens used instead of government coins.

coins - there are over 2,000 coins from every continent including ancient Greek and Roman coins. [ .. more]

bank notes - small group of foreign bank notes, dating from 1898 to 1949. [ .. more]

tokens - tokens were often issued in a local area and used instead of government coins. [ .. more]

The coins, tokens and bank notes were probably all added to the accession registers before 1970 with only two coins and one token added after 1970. None of the items were given an object number - as of 2016 nothing has been added to the Modes database.
