Collection Currency-related artifacts such as coins and bank notes.

The Bank of Canada Museum reopened a new space in July 2017 with a completely new design concept.

Their collection of over 100,000 currency-related artifacts from around the world include coins, bank notes, dies, plates, scales, cash registers, wallets, and more.

While several of these objects are in storage, a very interesting selection is currently displayed at the museum.

The Scope

In the goal to protect and preserve the collection, a series of tables, freestanding built-in wall cases have been custom designed for the new space.

One of which being a gorgeous 360 degrees circular glass case displaying a variety of three-dimensional objects.


The sensitive nature of the artifacts was a challenge for this project. The collection required specific environmental conditions with passive climate control.

Our Solutions

Cases were fully tested for daily air exchange rates and a list of Oddy-tested materials was provided for acceptance by the client.
