MONEY MUSEUM OF THE CENTRAL BANK OF THE PHILIPPINES

The Asian Journal article goes on to describe a numismatic museum in
that country:  "How appropriate then that our tour guides from the
Department of Tourism brought us to the Money Museum of the Central
Bank of the Philippines. The museum, now called the Mueso ng Bangko
Sentral ng Pilipinas, is a numismatist's haven."

"The Money Museum was established in 1974 and showcases the Central
Bank's collection of currencies, among other things. It also traces
the history of the currency, from the lowly cowry shells to what we
now know was our Philippine coins.

The museum is a repository and custodian of the country's numismatic
heritage, with a vast collection of coins, paper notes, medals,
artifacts and monetary items found in the Philippines during its
different historical periods."
