The collections are made of those elements that enable bartering goods in pre-Colombian times such as cocoa beans, sea shells or copper hatchets, as well as the gold and silver coins which were minted during the times of colonialism in the Río de la Plata territory. They are completed by the first patriotic coins, provincial issues from the 19th century and national currency issued by the Currency Board (1890-1935) and by the Central Bank from 1935 until the present.
