Money Rules the World

The topic of this guided tour is the history of money from the barter to the money in kind, goods or utility money all the way to the invention of the coin about 2500 years ago in India, China and the Aegean.

A special focus of this guided tour thereby lies on the art of the coinage in ancient Greece. The visual language of the coin images dominated the entire Mediterranean Sea for centuries.

Original objects and other visual material illustrate the topic.
