Our collections

The collections of the Economy Museum are one of Sweden's oldest, and the first objects date from around 1572. The collections consist of 650,000 objects, of which 450,000 are coins from all over the world.

The history of the collections starts ca 1572, when Johan III's chancellery clerk Rasmus Ludvigsson collects old Swedish coins as part of the dispute with Denmark over the right to include three crowns in the national coat of arms. Since then the collections have been expanded through gifts, purchases, exchanges and deposits.
