Cool Coins & Tools of the Trade

Delve into ancient trading practices, make your own money, and create your own cool coins in this collaborative family day with the OI Museum and Smart Museum of Art!

For this minds-open hands-on trade-stravaganza, OI educator Calgary Haines-Trautman and Smart Scholar Katerina Stefanescu will take you on a virtual tour of the OI Museum and Smart Museum’s collections of coins and trading tools. Then you’ll use your new knowledge to craft your own coins to trade within your own household! Have a pencil, piece of paper, scissors, and aluminum foil at the ready to create brand new coins of your very own!
