Money & Medals Network Zoom Event : Planes, Trains And… Numismatics?

The Money and Medals Network is hosting a Zoom event titled Planes, Trains and… Numismatics? on Wednesday 29th September 2021.

The Money and Medals Network exists to build and develop relationships between UK museums with collections of coins, medals, banknotes, tokens and associated numismatic objects. Training days featuring seminars led by contributors from local and national museums are being provided across the UK with a view to sharing knowledge and expertise. Numismatic support networks can then be set up as a result of these training sessions.

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Money and Medals Network is now running online training sessions on a variety of topics.

Session moderated by Henry Flynn, the British Museum
