Benjamin Hellings, the Jackson-Tomasko Associate Curator of Numismatics, and Emily Pearce Seigerman, the Senior Museum Assistant, at the Yale University Art Gallery will present a brief history of the numismatic collection at Yale University: from its beginnings and growth under the care of the Yale University Library to its transfer to the Yale University Art Gallery.

The presentation will also offer insight behind gallery construction, layout, case design, object selection, and physical-digital intersections.
