Events Description

When you toss a quarter in a fountain, lift a penny off the sidewalk or bake a nickel into a cake, you are taking part in rituals dating back hundreds or even thousands of years.

Explore the spiritual, the ceremonial, the seemingly impractical uses we have for money.

Learn the surprising stories behind some of the transformed money, the replica money and the real money we’ve used for millennia to bring good fortune to ourselves and others.
