Universität Eichstätt
Beskrivning
The coin collection of the chair of ancient history at the Catholic University of Eichstaett-Ingolstadt was founded in the mid-eighties. Since its establishment, the collection has been gradually expanded and missing pieces have been acquired, so that there are now 353 coins in total, that cover the range from classical Greece up to late antiquity and byzantine times. The collection contains mostly roman coins, although there are both Greek and Hellenistic coins, as well as mintages from the periphery of the Roman Empire, like Parthian and Celtic coins. The focus lies on Roman Imperial coinage, which make up the largest part of the collection, and is framed by smaller assemblages from Roman Republican times and late antiquity. Because of the lack of a proper edition, since 2013, the Eichstaett coin collection became a big part of everyday teaching at the university and contributed to various student- and research-projects, that helped systematise, edit and even exhibit several of these coins.

Beskrivning
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 The casts were originally made as research tools for scholars such as Konrad Kraft, Richard Delbrueck and Susanne Grunauer-von Hoerschelmann.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.

Utgivare
Universität Freiburg
Beskrivning
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.
