More Than 20,000 Numismatic Treasures at Your Fingertips
Online Money Museum Collection Accessible to Public
The American Numismatic Association's Edward C. Rochette Money Museum is home to tens of thousands of numismatic items. While the museum offers exhibits
such as "The History of Money," the "Harry W. Bass Jr. Gallery" and "Money of Empire: Elizabeth to Elizabeth" — as well as a
virtual museum — many objects are rarely on display.
Fortunately, many items from the collection are now available to view online. Museum staff has been uploading data for display since 2014, and now over
22,000 items are available in the online Money Museum Collection. Anyone can browse treasures and study data and images of each specimen. The goal is to have
up to 100,000 objects available to view.
"There are many benefits to this ongoing project," said Museum Curator Douglas Mudd. "The goal is to enhance security, make the collection
more accessible to the public and for research purposes—meeting the ANA's educational mission."
