Informative history of Cyprus coinage

One of the more well laid out and informative museums there is in Nicosia. Everything is clear, descriptive and easy to read. Somewhere interesting to visit.

This museum is sponsored by the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation and was established in 1984. The are 500 coins in the museum presenting the history of Cyprus in nine chronological periods. It is free to visit, and we felt is was interesting as it gave an insight into Cypriot life as well.
