George Manz of Regina, Canada notified me of this exhibit at the Nickle Galleries at the University of Calgary (Canada). It runs through September 3, 2018. Thanks. -Editor
What is Money? is the newest exhibition of ethnographic objects from the Nickle’s numismatic collection, showcasing diverse forms of money used across the globe through time. From some of the earliest minted metals
of the ancient world to Chinese knife money and African metalwork, from the Canadian Northwest Coast copper shields to unique stone money from the Island of Yap – the exhibition explores a range in cultural understandings of
money, its value in society and asks, what is money?
The Yap stone pictured has been borrowed from my collection.
Nice! great piece. -Editor
