Jerusalem: Coinage and empire from antiquity to the 19th century

(Tuesday) (Monday)

The Holy City of Jerusalem is central to the three Abrahamic traditions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Control of the city has been contested by the great empires of the region and has changed hands many times. This special display explores the history of Jerusalem through the coins minted and used in the city from the earliest coinage to that of the Ottoman Empire.
