If you're interested in ancient coin collecting from Rome and Greece,
The American Numismatic Association Money Museum hosts an exhibit, “The Die Cast: Money of the Ancient World.” You'll get the opportunity to learn about coins from the 7th Century B.C. through 476 A.D., the time of the collapse of the Roman Empire. You'll get to learn about why the first coins were created, why, and what they bought during that time period. The American Numismatic Association Money Museum will hold the exhibit through September 2007 at its location on 818 N. Cascade Avenue in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
