An engraved coin with a square hole in the middle.

Bring your natural curiosity and craftiness into FREE live learning sessions by Penn Museum educators!

As the holiday shopping season heats up, join a Penn Museum educator as we learn about the history of coins around the world. Students will learn about the materials, symbols, and process of making coins to learn more about the messages they carry. They will then use this as inspiration to design their own coins.

Recommended Materials: Blank sheet of paper and a writing utensil.
