The Academic Coin Cabinet of the Archaeological Collection of Rostock University

Definition
The Academic Coin Cabinet of the University of Rostock was founded in the year 1794, at the instigation of the outstanding orientalist Oluf Gerhard Tychsen (1734–1815) and the Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Friedrich Franz II. Thanks to the legacy built by Tychsen, complemented with numerous later acquisitions, Baron Erhard von Nettelbladt (1792–1663), responsible for the Cabinet as the librarian of the University, was able to enlarge the collection from 6’500 to no less than 27’000 entries. Several inventory settlements and many losses caused by World War II resulted in the dissolution of the Coin Cabinet in 1944. Consequently, the section containing the Ancient, Byzantine and Oriental coins, as well as a number of modern coins, were assigned to the corpus of the Archaeological Collection of Rostock University. The Archaeological Collection of Rostock University has its seat at the Heinrich-Schliemann-Institute for Ancient Studies. It can be described as a typical academic research and study collection, mostly used for academic teaching. Moreover, there are permanent exhibition rooms, opened to the public once per week. Apart from the coins, the collection contains archaeological objects of the Egyptian, Greek and Roman periods, as well as a number of plaster casts of Greek and Roman sculptures. In 2008 the collection was significantly increased, as the inventory of the Collection of Antiquities of Greifswald University was added, which by that time was given over as a permanent loan. To date, the collection of coins consists of c. 4’000 Ancient and Byzantine, c. 800 Oriental and c. 4’500 modern coins and medals. In addition, there is a small but rather important collection of fish glue casts taken in the time of Tychsen from a number of Islamic coins. A small part of the coin collection is integrated into the permanent collection open to the public. The coins kept in the deposit are mainly used for academic teaching. They offer the opportunity to learn and practice the methods of numismatics by using original objects. Furthermore, the coins are regularly used in the context of workshops held by the working group ‘School & Museum’. Up to date, only the Roman and Byzantine coins have been investigated scientifically. These coins were published by Silke Burmeister in 1999. Since 2019 we are adding, to begin with, the data of c. 900 Greek and Roman coins to the NUMiD database. More will follow.

Coin Cabinet of the Mainz City Archives

Definition
The core holdings of the coin cabinet of the Mainz City Archives are based on the coin cabinet of the old electoral university founded in 1784, which was transferred into the possession of the city by order of Emperor Napoleon in 1804 after the decline of the electoral state. In 1919, in recognition of the need for adequate care, Dr Wilhelm Diepenbach was appointed for the first time as a scientist with exclusive responsibility for the archive and the coin cabinet. The personnel and institutional connection between the Coin Cabinet and the Archive that has existed since then was maintained even after 1980, when the City Archive became an independent office. In total, the Coin Cabinet contains about 18,000 pieces. The main focus is on over 7,500 coins from Mainz and the other Electoral Mainz mints from the Merovingian period to the end of the Electorate of Mainz, including medals on the Archbishops of Mainz and other personalities. In addition, there is an important antique section with 6,000 Roman and 700 Greek coins. The cabinet can be used for university teaching and is also open to anyone interested in specific research projects by appointment.
