The Money Museum has a great WWI Exhibit — with a Brand-New Virtual Exhibit online

Called “The Great War” and more optimistically “The War to End All Wars,” World War I was an event that changed the world’s political map and the fabric of civilization.

To honor the 100th anniversary of United States involvement in World War I, the Money Museum, operated by the American Numismatic Association (ANA) and located adjacent to Colorado College, is unveiling its newest exhibit: Trenches to Treaties: World War I in Remembrance.

The exhibit showcases coins and paper money from combatant nations, art medals and military decorations, as well as weapons and uniforms to illustrate the events and effects of World War I politically, economically and socially.

Notable artifacts on display include rare military decorations (awarded for heroism) such as the U.S. Congressional Medal of Honor and the French Croix de guerre; personal items soldiers carried in the field; dog tags, military badges and insignia; propaganda and satirical medals; plus a trench that replicates the front lines of battle.

"Trenches to Treaties explores World War I with money and beautiful, thought-provoking medals. Themes range from finance, propaganda, art and commemoration,” said Money Museum Director and Curator Doug Mudd. “Exciting interactives include a life-size trench and operating morse code keys as used in trench communications. Come learn about the crash of the gold standard, merchant submarines and the role of pigeons!"

Now -- The Money Museum offers a remarkable new Virtual Numismatic Exhibit, as a companion to Trenches to Treaties. This new online exhibit for Trenches to Treaties: World War I in Remembrance can be found here: https://www.money.org/money-museum/virtual-exhibits/wwi

This exhibit runs through November 2018.
