Overview

The Otago Museum houses one of the largest ancient coin collections in Australasia. The Roman component of the collection, numbering approximately 1100 coins, has coins dating from the early 3rd century BCE to the late 4th century CE. Working in collaboration with the Museum, Dr Gwynaeth McIntyre and Dr Daniel Osland have been digitizing the collection, incorporating digital research and teaching tools into Undergraduate and Honours courses, supervising student research projects, and researching both the coins themselves and the history of the collection.

This project provides research opportunities at Honours, Master’s, and PhD levels. For examples of recent student research projects, visit Julio-Claudian Coinage at the Otago Museum 2018 and The Iconography of Legitimacy in Sextus Pompeius' Naval Coinage.
