Coins and medals
COINS AND MEDALS
Kilian Stobaeus’s collection of 604 coins and medals was not included in the 1735 donation. The coin cabinet was only established in 1745 when Florentina Stobaeus sold her late husband’s collection of coins and medals to Lund University. Subsequent purchases and changes to the collection make the identification of Stobaeus’s objects in the current coin cabinet (stored at Lund University Historical Museum) difficult. However, the original inventory from the sale gives an insight into the types of coins and medals Stobeaus collected. The collection contained 2 gold medals, 16 gold coins, 147 larger silver coins, 199 small silver coins, 127 bronze medals, 43 bronze coins, 52 iron coins, 16 Kufic coins and 2 Roman coins.
