Trailer: Ius in nummis. The Thomas Würtenberger Collection


The major new acquisition “Ius in nummis: The Thomas Würtenberger Collection” provides both the occasion and material for this special exhibition by the Münzkabinett at the Bode-Museum.


The breadth of Tomas Würtenberger’s “Ius in nummis”collection is unique. Gathered together over half a century, it comprises more than 3,000 objects – primarily medallions and a smaller number of coins – focussing on the modern legal history of Western Europe, though with an increasingly global perspective in more recent years. As such, every object in the collection opens a window onto a piece of legal history.
