Until 2004, the permanent exhibition was situated in only two rooms in the Albertinum. Since 7th June 2015, the world famous Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden are presenting one percent of the unbelievable collection of more than 300.000 objects in four rooms. Located on the second floor of the Royal Palace, the Coin Cabinet exhibits coins and medals as well as orders, bank notes, historic bonds and even minting machines and equipment.
The most interesting and considerable exhibits will demonstrate the beginning of the coinage in Saxony, medals showing portraits of all Saxon princes and – of course – currencies from the antiquity to the present age. Exciting anecdotes and stories about money will complete the visit of this unique and special museum.
