The Indian Institute of Research in Numismatic Studies was established in 1980 and is the only one of its kind in Asia. To impart a general idea about Indian coins to the common people, the Institute has organized a small museum. The Coin Museum is positioned against the backdrop of the enthralling Ajneri Hill, Nashik.

The Exhibits

The museum offers a panoramic view of Indian coinage from the earliest period to the modern times with the help of coins, moulds, dyes, replicas, photographs, and brief write-ups. Dioramas depicting coin minting and coin manufacturing techniques, like casting, machine striking, etc. are also on exhibit. Apart from the numismatic material, some bronzes, terracotta's, copper- hoard objects, paintings and some other historical artifacts are also displayed.

The Institute has now begun workshops to encourage the hobby of coin collection in the Indians.
