Article | “White Gold: Revealing the World’s Earliest Coins” exhibition on view at the Israel Museum, Jerusalem

Published by Art Daily.org

JERUSALEM.- White Gold: Revealing the World’s Earliest Coins is the first public display of an outstanding group of five hundred miniature masterpieces from two important collections of electrum coins. The exhibition provides an intimate glimpse into the dawn of coinage, shedding light on the story of one of the most important innovations in human history. Electrum coins are not only historically significant, but also astonishingly beautiful. Reflecting a rich diversity of subjects, they trace the evolution of Greek art from the seventh through the fourth century BCE and draw us magnetically into a vibrant and fascinating iconographic world. The temporary exhibition runs through March 2013 at the Israel Museum, Jerusalem.
