Coins and Medals Department closed for relocation from 1 September


The Coins and Medals Department is moving, which means that the Coins and Medals Reading Room will be closed to the public from 1 September to 31 December 2018.

The Department's current location will be incorporated in the future museum and will be converted to gallery space.

The coins and medals collection will be relocated to the 3rd floor, where the Center for American Studies is currently housed. That collection will, in turn, be incorporated into the General Reading Room, from 10 September. 

The Coins and Medals Reading Room will remain accessible until 31 August. Afterwards, you will no longer be able to consult coins or books in person, but you will still be able to search the online catalogue. Please make sure you plan your research accordingly.

During the relocation works, you can still contact the department via

We apologise for the inconvenience and guarantee you the best service after the relocation.
