The month of May invites you to many exciting numismatic events online. On Monday, May 17, a round table about the history of coin collections will be held on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Pushkin Museum’s coin cabinet in Moscow.

Reports will be made not only from Moscow itself, but also from Tver, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Ivanovo, Vladimir, and other collections in Russia. We will be joined by our colleagues from Brussels and the KIKPE collection in Athens. Additionally, we will have the opportunity to present the Berlin coin collections and our Corpus Nummorum project.
