The research project, which was implemented in 2021 with the financial support of the J. F. Costopoulos Foundation, concerns the classification and photographing of the coin collection at the Museum of Coins. The collection was formed by donations from antiquarian individuals and members of the teaching and research staff of the Department of History and Archaeology. It includes approximately 1,100 silver and bronze coins, dating from the 5th century BC to the 15th century AD. The research project is particularly significant for the enhancement of the subject of Numismatics at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki while at the same time, it contributes to the exploitation of the numismatic collection by the scientific community and its promotion to the wider public.
