Collection of coins and medals

Coins were minted in Zug from 1564 to 1805.  Before 1700 they were mainly minted for export and not for local use. Several different types of foreign coins were in circulation in Zug. The museum boasts the most extensive collection of Zug coinage in Switzerland today. It consists of the museum’s original holdings and the Luthiger collection which was acquired in 2005. It had been accumulated by three generations of a Zug family of chemists and now represents the main bulk of the entire coin collection. Besides coins the collection also contains a large and important selection of Zug medals.
