Coin Museum Overview

Ranked 20 of 169 sightseeing in Nasik

In 1980, the Indian Institute of Research in Numismatic Studies was established in Nasik, the only one of its kind in Asia. It is situated in the surroundings of the Anjneri Hill that has a rich historical background as it was under the rule of many rulers including Marathas, Kolis, Bahmanis and Mughals. The museum contains a well-documented record of the history of Indian numismatics. At this place, the various currency systems that existed in India from ancient times can be studied by means of photographs, line drawings, articles, replicas and real coins. For easy reference, an extensive archive with around one hundred thousand cardexes has been preserved. A number of workshops are also held by this institute to promote coin collecting in India.

Basically for researchers

The coin museum is located about an hour's drive out of Nashik city. It is not so much a place for the casual visitor because there are very few common exhibits on display. It is principally a place for coin researchers for whom there are lots of facilities including stay arrangements. There is a huge archive of material for coin research, carefully sorted and set to help with the research work.

Insight of Indian currency system from earliest time to modern era

The small museum is located just outside Nashik, right on the road to Trimbakeshwar. This extraordinary museum founded in 1980, has a very extensive and interesting collection of coins and inspired me that would not otherwise interested in numismatics. Besides an extensive coin collection, it gives a good insight into the history of the Indian currency system from the earliest times to the modern era. On show will be coins and replicas, photographs, brief descriptions and dioramas as well as manufacturing techniques of coinage. It is on the Trimbakeshwar Road. Small children would learn a lot about history of coins. Entry fee is five to ten rupees.

Much below expectations

There was no one to guide through the tour. Surroundings are not maintained. Write-ups are not properly displayed and font size is too small. It was much below expectations.
