The Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf holds one of the biggest and most comprehensive numismatic collections of ancient coins and medallions at University level in Germany. The core of the collection is represented by some 8,000 coins supplemented by considerable holdings of casts of coins from Asia minor of the Hellenistic (Greek) and Roman Imperial periods. The collection is of interest for numismatic research and teaching.
