New podcast episode – on numismatics and museum collections

In the latest episode of the Cultural Life of Money and Finance podcast, Matthew Treherne is joined by Kat Baxter, Curator of Archaeology and Numismatics at Leeds Museums and Galleries (https://museumsandgalleries.leeds.gov.uk/). They discuss Kat’s work on a forthcoming exhibition, scheduled for February 2022 in Leeds City Museum, called Money Talks. They discuss the insights that can be gained when a collection of money-related objects are brought to the centre of attention in this way, and Kat discusses some of the key objects in the exhibition – from coin hoards to money-related toys.
