Safe as Houses: Money Matters

Silver shilling from Whittingham hoard

Discover Preston display
25 May - 12 September

Find out how Prestonians have saved, stashed and safeguarded their money, from medieval and Civil War coin hoards to the Co-operative Society!

This display is part of the Money Matters project to better catalogue, interpret and display our coin collections, supported by the Esmee Fairbairn Collections Fund and the Friends of the Harris Museum & Art Gallery.  It is on show in the Discover Preston gallery which is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
