Welcome to China Numismatic Museum
Money can come in many different forms: bulky as bronze shovels, iron knives and gold bars, or as small as shells and silver dollars. With a collection of nearly 1,000 items of currency, this educational museum seeks to trace the evolution of Chinese currency while unveiling the aesthetic values of the Chinese people, and the development of the social, economic and cultural conditions in China.
