[COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO] The American Numismatic Association’s (ANA) physical Money Museum exhibit “Trenches to Treaties: World War I in Remembrance” is scheduled to close in early 2019.
However, the exhibit will permanently exist on the ANA website (http://money.org), where viewers can visit any of the more than 20 displays in a 360-degree virtual tour.
Called “The Great War” by many and “The War to End All Wars” by optimists, the events of World War I changed the global political map and the fabric of civilization. More than 17 million people died during this conflict 100 years ago.
Ancient empires crumbled and new nations were established during four years of social upheaval and revolution. This exhibit uses money and medals to illustrate the economic, political and social events and effects of World War I.
