The Westminster numismatic collection comprises of 170 coins, dating from the fifth century BC to 1962. Amongst the collection are rare coins, as well as forgeries and electrotypes (a process invented around 1850). One of the coins in the collection has a special interest for the school, a Trade Token of 1796 bearing the image of a Westminster scholar (NUM.131). This collection is a small part of the School's extensive coin collection that was sold at auction in 1976.
