Collections: Coins & Medals

At Worthing Museum & Art Gallery we have thousands of coins and medals in our collections.

Overview

The earliest coin dates to around 50BC and is a gold stater given by the Ambiani tribe of modern-day Belgium in exchange for military support against Julius Caesar himself!  Extensive Roman coin hoards, including the famous Patching Hoard are also in our collections, many of which are on display.  We also have a large collection of medals, from commemorative issues to wartime medals issued to both the British forces and the German Wehrmacht.
