Money Museum Celebrates National Coin Week, April 17-21, with Free Admission and Family Activities

The Money Museum will celebrate National Coin Week with an array of activities, including an open house with special events on Saturday, April 21 from 10:30 am to 5 p.m. Admission to the Money Museum is FREE for all visitors during National Coin Week!

The museum showcases some of the most valuable and historical numismatic treasures the public cannot see anywhere else. Rarities include a 1913 Liberty Head nickel valued at $2 million and two of the 15 known 1804 silver dollars valued together at $6 million.

For the millions of people who enjoy collecting coins or looking through pocket change in hopes of finding something rare and valuable, the fascination with numismatics is linked to culture, history, art and science.

To recognize the role of numismatics in building bridges and promoting unity, the theme – “Connecting Cultures: From Many, One.” – was selected to celebrate the 95th annual National Coin Week event. The theme focuses on U.S. and world coins throughout history, commemorative medals, monetary unions, designs on euro notes, and more.
