In times of Pay Pal, credit cards and digital coins – so-called BitCoins – cash has increasingly vanished from everyday life. At the same time special events, such as the minting of the five-euro coin in 2016, meet with unimagined interest. The Dresden Münzkabinett brings together a collection of approximately 300,000 objects, ranging from antiquity to the present day.

Dresden's new treasure chamber

In June 2015, the Münzkabinett returned to its original home in the Residenzschloss with its long-awaited permanent exhibition, designed around a new concept. This reopening also marked the completion of a further stage in the reconstruction of the Dresden Residenzschloss.

One of Dresden‘s oldest museums

The Münzkabinett is one of Dresden‘s oldest museums, dating back to the time of Duke Georg the Bearded (1500 -1539). Over the following centuries, the electors and kings of Saxony, particularly August the Strong, his son continued to expand the Münzkabinett through purchases and gifts.
