Congratulations to Sarah Weicksel, AHA director of research and publications, and AHA member Ellen Feingold on the opening of the Smithsonian’s first numismatic history exhibit for children, which they co-curated with fellow historian Orlando Serrano Jr. and education specialist Abby Pfisterer. The exhibit, Really BIG Money, opened April 8 at the National Museum of American History in Washington, DC. It features 185 “big” numismatic objects—in size, quantity, or denomination—that “were selected to surprise, delight, and engage young visitors,” said Feingold.
