NUMISMA-TOURIST HOWARD BERLIN VISITS STOCKHOLM AND COPENHAGEN

Dr. Howard Berlin writes: "I'm in Stockholm right now. I
spent a day at the Royal Coin Cabinet, which is the National
Museum of Economy. Last week in Copenhagen I was at the Royal
Collection of Coins and Medals, which is part of the National
Museum. Both institutions also have numismatic libraries.

"The Copenhagen museum's library is open on Thursdays 1-4pm
but at other times should be by an advance appointment. The
official museum address is Frederiksholms Kanal 12, but the
main entrance really is on Ny Vestergade.

"The Stockholm museum's library currently has about 80 active
periodicals and their total holdings span more than 700 meters
of shelf space. Interested numismatists and researchers should
make an advance appointment. The museum is directly across
from the Royal Palace at Slottsbacken 6.

"The numismatic exhibitions of both museums are excellent,
particularly the specimens of their own coins (Denmark and
Sweden). There are some banknotes on display also.

"The Royal Coin Cabinet's Swedish medals exhibition occupies
one floor and over 40 cases. They just opened a Swedish plate
money exhibit with the heaviest coin (19.7 kg - 10 daler plate
money) and the first Swedish bank note. I was honored to be
able to see the exhibit two days before it was to open."
