THE COIN CABINET
In the Coin Cabinet at the Museum of Ostrobothnia, almost all of the metal coins that were in use in Finland over a thousand year period are on display. The main core of the exhibition consists of the collection of Councillor of State Mauritz Hallberg (1851-1924), which comprises 5,500 coins in total, from the Swedish and Russian eras, as well as from the period since Finland gained independence.
The collection covers a wide range, spanning from the reign of Olof Skötkonung (995-1022) until the currency reform in the 1960s.
