Otago's coin collection

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:38 pm on 19 October 2018

Otago Museum has an incredible Roman coin collection, one to rival international institutions.

But most of the coins are stored in the museum's vault, out of the public eye. 

Dr Gwynaeth McIntyre and her colleague are studying the coins and getting them digitised so we can all check them out online. She tells us why they're of interest.
