Virtual Exhibits

Colorado Numismatic History virtual exhibit

The ANA's Virtual Exhibits webpage takes popular displays from the Edward C. Rochette Money Museum and makes them available online to enthusiasts around the country and world. Learn about the museum's spectacular rarities, explore a wide range of historical subjects, and expand your collecting knowledge and interests. These virtual exhibits allow you to view high resolution images and detailed information about fascinating numismatic objects.

The exhibits are displayed like they would be at the museum, but the items are clickable and bring up more information and high-res photos of the items. Current exhibits include:
  • A House Divided: Money of the Civil War
  • The Bebee Collection
  • Colorado Numismatic History
  • The Continental Dollar of 1776
  • 1804 Dollar
  • 1913 Nickel
  • Colorado Gold
  • Morgan Dollars
  • Counterfeiting

Tales From the Vault

ANA Tales From The Vault

Tales from the Vault is a series of articles designed to highlight the lesser-known parts of the ANA collection.

These columns feature interesting and informative stories about individual objects or groups of objects that do not often (or ever) get to see the light of day.

The collection within the ANA vault holds approximately 275,000 objects ; however, we only have space to show a tiny fraction of these hidden gems. Check back regularly for an inside look at the ANA vault and the marvelous collection we are excited to share with you.

These are nicely done blog articles of varying length on a number of interesting topics, accompanied by reader comments. -Editor

Museum Collection
