Colorado Springs Money Museum

One of the American Numismatic Association Museum is located in downtown Colorado Springs. Downtown Colorado Springs is approximately 16 miles south of Monument, CO. It's an easy ride on Interstate 25. They are open 9:00 to 5:00 most days, and closed on Monday.

They house over 250,000 money related objects. Some are very old coins from the Roman period, many from other countries, and most interestingly are the coin mistakes. They have a collection of coins that were misprinted. Both coins and paper money. These mistakes are very pricey now. And oh so fun to see. Other valuable collections include a 1804 silver dollar, a 1913 Libery nickel, and an 1866 no motto series coin.

The museum isn't very big, it'll take about 2 hours to go thru. But, kids love it as much as adults.

My dad is a coin collector and he has mentioned this to me, but I have to get him UP here, before we can go! =o) I guess I could go, but he is the one with the interest... he visited the Mint many years ago and loved it!

This is a little different than a Mint. I'm sure he'd enjoy the heck out of it. BTW, thanks for stopping by each of my posts and leaving a comment. It's totally appreciated! I'll go catch up on yours now.
