The dollar is found the world over. It is familiar to us as the money of the United States, but dollars are also the currency of many other nations around the globe. The objects in this display explore the history of one of the world’s most iconic currencies. It traces the story from its origins in 16th century Bohemia and Germany, to its position as the dominant currency in world markets in the 21st century.
