MONEY & MEDALS
The Network is funded by Arts Council England and the British Museum's Partnership UK programme which receives funding from the Vivmar Foundation. A number of key partner institutions are affiliated with the Network.
It has five main aims:
Act as an information exchange for curators within the UK whose collections include coins, medals and other objects relating to monetary and economic history and numismatics
Provide information on best practice, new research and news items relating to the understanding, care and public access of those collections
Encourage and facilitate collaborative ventures between the curators of those collections and to nurture links between those curators and individuals outside museums with an interest in related subject areas
Make the broad case for the potential of those collections and the importance of numismatic expertise for bringing them effectively to a wide audience and;
Work to identify new and exciting ways in which those collections can be presented to the public.
