The Historic New Orleans Collection says
Learn how to start (or grow) a currency collection this Saturday at The Historic New Orleans Collection.

The program will take place from 10 a.m. To noon at THNOC's Williams Research Center, 410 Chartres St. Admission is free. Reservations are recommended and may be made by emailing or calling (504) 523-4662. The first 50 participants will receive free collecting kits!

At this two-hour, interactive workshop, THNOC curator and historian Erin M. Greenwald lead a discussion on the history of currency and currency collecting in Louisiana. Greenwald will be joined by collector Randy Haynie—who has spent more than 50 years amassing one of the largest currency collections in the state—and longtime dealer Stephen Cohen of the venerable French Quarter antiques shop James H. Cohen and Sons. THNOC cataloguer Kristin Hébert Veit will discuss best practices to house currency collections.

This event is presented in conjunction with the exhibition "Money, Money, Money! Currency Holdings from The Historic New Orleans Collection," which features more than two hundred original objects—including coins, paper currency, printing plates, political cartoons, counterfeit detectors, and paintings—that illustrate the history of money in America, with a special focus on Louisiana. The exhibition will be open before and after the event.
