Relicase completed Chinese Ancient Money Exhibition

In October 2011, Relicase completed the on-site installation and commissioning of museum display cases for the exhibition of ancient Chinese money. This exhibition held at the National Museum of China.

 

The National Museum of China is known for its rich collection of money from various historical periods, a large portion of which came from the generous donations of collectors, including some renowned collectors. The exhibition, Ancient Chinese Money, is one of the major exhibitions on regular display organized by the museum.

 

The earliest Chinese money appeared at least in the Western Zhou Dynasty and developed in the Eastern Zhou. During the Qin period, the Emperor unified various currencies. After a 2,000-year evolution, the colorful Chinese monetary system now embodies the interesting history of ancient politics, economy, and folk culture. Chinese money is also noted for its excellent calligraphy and casting skills.
