A Cabinet of Coins

A Cabinet of Coins

Curated by graduate student George Watson.

 

Cabinet of CoinsA beautiful cabinet of what appeared to be coins from across the ancient world was hidden away in our storeroom, waiting to be rediscovered. Once the dust had settled, closer inspection revealed that these coins were in fact electrotype copies – petite casts to add to our collection.

Donated to the Museum of Classical Archaeology in 1927 by a fellow of Christ’s, A.H Lloyd, this collection was made using originals housed in the British Museum.

 

Museum of Classical Archaeology, Cambridge


Every cast tells two stories.

One ancient. One modern.

Admission is free.
