Tour of the Guatemalan Numismatic Museum & Refreshments

In 1733 the first coin was minted in Guatemala. 141 years would have to go by before the population of the country would see the first bill issued locally. The monetary pieces incorporate a nominal value immersed in a highly artistic and historic merit.

The Banco de Guatemala hopes to contribute to the preservation and diffusion of national culture in the operation of this museum and is happy to offer the delegates of the High Security Printing conference a tour of its numismatic heritage.
