This collection contains two coin collections:
World Coin Collection: Contains 74 unique historical coins. The bulk of the collection was created in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd centuries, however there are several coins of Greek or Roman Republic origin.
There are also a number of coins from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries, predominately from European kingdoms and Latin American mints, although some are from Nepal, China, and Zanzibar. Works used to identify and label the coins include: the historical references to Roman coins by E.A. Sydenham and Harold Mattingly and the handbooks on ancient coin collecting by Zander Klawans and Wayne G. Sayles. Sam Robinson provided the item level metadata for the contents of this collection.
Kilburg Coin Collection: The Kilburg Coin Collection was donated by Don F. Kilburg. It was catalogued and researched in May 2010 by Nate Rowland working with both the Classics Department and Special Collections and Archives.
All of the coins currently reside in Special Collections and Archives.
