So I enjoyed 10 days in England in late July, though I didn’t really enjoy the heat wave. (Air conditioning in U.K. hotels typically involves how much you want to open your window at night--at least in my price range.) A highlight was a Friday evening spent at the British Museum. There may already be threads about ancient coin displays in the British Museum, but here’s my modest contribution. Coins are notoriously difficult to display; they are small, two-sided, and often too valuable to be made very accessible. Still, I thought the British Museum did a fine job displaying the coins and providing context that would be of interest to specialists and the general public alike. It seems the British Museum tended to privilege hoard finds in their displays. Coins in museums are also difficult to photograph. But perhaps you will get a sense of the displays from the attached photos (including a selfie!). The photos, as you might imagine, do not do the displays justice. And I tended to privilege Roman coins. I took my selfie with what I thought was the Arras Medallion of Constantine, but then I noticed it was an electrotype copy. Oh well. At least the crosswalk at Abbey Road was genuine.
