Belgian emergency money from the First World War : sequel

B25238_recto_002 [1]

In 2013, the museum uploaded his entire collection of Belgian emergency banknotes and coins from the First World War. Since then, we have received a lot of positive reactions.

The numerous historical and local initiatives surrounding the commemoration of the First World War (exhibitions, articles and books) have boosted the opportunity to use the information and the images from the online catalogue.

Recently, the collection has been completed with some new acquisitions from Ghent, Sint-Jans-Molenbeek, but also from Zingem, a municipality from which the museum did not yet own any emergency notes. Curious ? Take a look at the online catalogue available in French [2] or Dutch [3].
