Synopsis: The Value of Money celebrates the power of using monetary objects to explore history.

With objects from every inhabited continent, spanning more than 2,600 years, this book showcases the National Numismatic Collection?s unique strengths, including the geographic and chronological diversity of the collection and the stunning rarities it contains. The companion volume to a major exhibition of the same name, this book examines the origins of money, new monetary technologies, the political and cultural messages money conveys, numismatic art and design, and the practice of collecting money. The Value of Money connects American history to global histories of exchange, cultural interaction and expression, political change, and innovation.
