Money Museum
Special exhibition „Money Creators“: 30.06.21 – 29.05.22
Money creators – Who decides what’s money?

Money creators are central figures or institutions. They determine what counts as currency in their territory and bring it into circulation. Currencies can also be established absent a central authority – as long as people agree with each other. The key factor is what is accepted as money within a society. This special exhibition looks at money creators from days gone by. It explains who has this role nowadays and looks ahead to the money of tomorrow.
