Zeitzeugen Coins from the Bundesbank’s numismatic collection


The Bundesbank’s numismatic collection of around 90,000 coins and 260,000 banknotes in Frankfurt am Main traces the global history of cash from its infancy in the seventh century BC to the present day. Around 300 coins were hand-picked from the Bank’s collection.

These exceptional and sometimes unique coins, most of which are made of gold and silver, represent the crème de la crème of the Bank’s collection.

This informally written and entertaining book brings the coins to life, transports the reader back to various eras of numismatic history and boasts captivating images of historical coins.

Priced at €39.90, Zeitzeugen is only available in german language in bookshops or from the shop in the Bundesbank’s Money Museum.
