on-line oral presentation S93. HISTORY OF COLLECTING


Wolfgang Szaivert (Department of Numismatics and Monetary History, Vienna)


After the publication of ancient coins in this collection, the focus shifted to the treatment of modern coins and medals. The publication in a form valid at the time – that of a printed book - is now almost obsolete, and the internet is becoming the medium of choice. Before that, however, one has to consider how to arrange the objects of the collection in boxes in the first place. We have put the Talerkabinett from Klosterneuburg online on a newly created page that is also intended to present other Austrian collections, because it is precisely these collections that contain special pieces which often go unnoticed in large collections but suddenly appear here and seek the light of day.
