A numismatics workshop for high school students, Money Matters introduces participants to basic and advanced concepts of numismatics. Facilitating an opportunity to explore coins from the MAP Collection, the workshop leads students through the entire gamut of Indian coinage: from ancient punch-marked coins of the pre-Buddhist era to the coins of various dynasties such as the Indo-Greeks, the Kushans, and the Guptas, up to the reign of the East India Company. Including an introduction to ancient scripts, the workshop helps students discover the value of coins not only in historical study, but also their relevance to economics, aesthetics, geography and cultures.
