ALPHA BANK NUMISMATIC COLLECTION



The Alpha Bank Numismatic Collection is considered one of the most important ones on an international level. It comprises almost 11,000 coins from the ancient Greek world. A few extremely rare items stand out among them, unique specimens of ancient engraving. The Collection includes coins from the end of the 7th Century BC and the invention of coinage to the 3rd Century AD and the termination of coin production by the cities of the Roman Empire . However, there are also some Roman and Byzantine coins. 

The primary aim of the Collection is to highlight the widespread extent and influence of the Greek civilisation on the ancient world. Thus, the Numismatic Collection Section organises exhibitions, lectures and educational programmes, participates in academic symposiums and international conferences and produces the relevant publications.
