The folks at the Princeton Numismatic Library Collection have been busy.
Many institutions are taking their coins off display, or worse yet, deaccessioning them, but Princeton continues to make new numismatic acquisitions. Here’s their latest press release.
To showcase its recent acquisition of a collection of more than 120 medals of modern Greece, the Princeton University Numismatic Collection has installed an exhibition of a selection of historically important pieces in the Boyd Room of the Department of Rare Books and Special Collections in Firestone Library. The exhibition has been curated by Mary Thierry, Princeton Class of 2012, who has been working in the Numismatic Collection for the past three years and has taken the University’s graduate seminar in numismatics. The medals will be on display for an indefinite period during hours when the department is open to the public.
