Discovering Treasure in Special Collections

Join us to explore the University of Leeds coin collection.

The University of Leeds has an impressive collection of over 15,000 coins, medals and tokens dating from the ancient world to the 1960s, from all around the world.

Student and research scholar Emma Herbert-Davies introduces the collection through the story of her project on the eighteenth-century Winchester Coins Cabinet.
