Treasures from the past
Old coins do not just turn up at auctions or exchanges. Countless valuable coins also lie buried in the ground right beneath our feet. Some of these are on display at the Museum of Money in Lausanne. This is home to around 1,400 valuable coins and medals from the region dating from antiquity to the present day.
