The Value of Money

Design render of the "vault door" exhibit entrance

The Value of Money examines global histories of exchange, cultural interaction, political change, and innovation through more than 400 objects from the National Museum of American History’s National Numismatic Collection.  The new exhibition, set to open in July 2015, explores the origins of money, new monetary technologies, the political and cultural messages money conveys, numismatic art and design, and the practice of collecting money.
