FEATURED WEB SITE: THE NICKLE COIN COLLECTION, UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY

This week's featured web site is the Nickle coin collection (and no,
it's not a collection of nickels...):

"The Nickle Coin Collection is one of the most important collections
in Canada. It was donated to the University of Calgary in 1980 by Carl
O. Nickle, and has since been enlarged through subsequent gifts by
The Nickle Family Foundation and others.

"The collection now consists of over 16,000 items, primarily ancient
Greek, Roman and Byzantine coins, but also includes a smaller collection
of "primitive" or token money, European coins, medals of the 18th and
19th century, and Canadian Paper money.

"The collection is housed in The Nickle Arts Museum and there is
a continuing display in the Numismatics Gallery on the main floor."
