Collections

There are East Asian coins, paper money and other money-related objects in many collections around the world. In China, there are museums devoted to Chinese money. Outside China, Chinese money collections tend to be part of larger collections, and it’s useful to look in numismatic, Asian art, and ethnographic collections in museums, also in libraries and banks.

The drop-down menu will let you search for collections in different parts of the world. If you want to visit or study a collection, please contact them before you go.

Feedback and suggestions are welcome!
