BERLIN'S BODE MUSEUM NUMISMATIC COLLECTION REDISPLAYED

"The latest addition to Berlin's cultural landscape, the Bode Museum,
is to reopen its doors after a six-year makeover. The museum's domed
building, which juts out into the Spree River, is a work of art in
itself."

"... when journalists were invited into the freshly refurbished
neoclassical structure on the tip of Berlin's famous Museum Island,
sunshine poured through the building's windows and skylights - perfect
illumination for the painstaking, 162-million-euro ($203 million)
renovation that has created a new home for Berlin's sculpture
collection, along with treasures of the Byzantine era and coins
from antiquity to the present day.

'After 67 years, after the years of war, evacuation, destruction
and the long years of division, we can finally display the richness
of our treasures,' said Lehmann."

"The numismatics collection has a total of 500,000 objects, recording
a history of coinage from the 6th century BCE to the common European
currency, the euro, of the 21st century. Some 4,000 coins and medals
will be on display."

[Does anyone know if the Bode museum has a numismatic library in
connection with its collection?  -Editor]
