Universität Frankfurt
Description
The coin collections of the Goethe University are located in the Institute for Archaeological Sciences, and reside partly in the Antiquities Collection of Abteilung I (Classical Archaology) and partly in the collections of Abteilung II (Archaeology and History of the Roman Provinces and the Archaeology of Coins, Money and the Economy in the Ancient World). The Antiquities Collection of the Goethe University, based at the Classical Archaeology Department of the Institute for Archaeological Sciences includes around 250 ancient coins alongside a rich collection of ancient vases, glass, lamps, terracottas and other objects. Roman coins form the focus of the coin collection, supplemented by a small number of Greek, Jewish, medieval and modern coins. The coins are regularly used in teaching as study objects, especially for iconographic questions, but also for numismatic identification exercises. The largest part of the numismatic collections of Department II of the Institute for Archaeological Sciences at the Goethe University Frankfurt pertains to around 30,000 plaster cast of ancient coins, encompassing all periods of antiquity. The casts were originally made as research tools for scholars such as Konrad Kraft, Richard Delbrueck and Susanne Grunauer-von Hoerschelmann. A particular strength of the plaster cast collection is lies in the Roman Provincial Coinage. The department also owns two collections of original coins: a teaching collection of around 75 pieces, and a special collection of roman coins with countermarks, encompassing around 300 pieces.

Münzsammlung des Seminars für Alte Geschichte der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität

Universität Freiburg
Description
The Seminar of Ancient History holds more than 12,000 coins of the Roman Imperial period and Late Antiquity. Their majority originates from a collection which Herbert Nesselhaus, the former Professor of Ancient History, was able to purchase in 1961 from the Archbishopric of Freiburg. The collection had found a temporary home there some twenty years earlier: Between 1900 and 1926 the Geheimer Oberbaurat Heinrich Wefels from Erlangen built a collection of c. 14,000 coins, which he had acquired at various auctions. About 10,300 are coins of Roman emperors and an additional 2,400 represent provincial issues. Wefels focussed on the Imperial period, but did add both earlier and later coinages, too. About 950 Byzantine coins, 360 Roman Republican ones, 220 Greek issues, and 22 Celic coins bear witness to these secondary areas of interest. Although the Seminar für Alte Geschichte is not any longer able to purchase additional coins, its collection was augmented through generous donations by Herbert A. Cahn, Otto Feld and Gerold Walser. Today the collection is complemented by a scientific numismatic library, which again originates in the collector Heinrich Wefels.
