Trust, counterfeiting and security are the three highlights of this exhibition, presented in parallel with the museum's collection.
Trust underpins social relations, it’s a value that brings stability, security and predictability to society. Trust is also essential for money – a strong currency deteriorates without trust.
In collaboration with other entities, Banco de Portugal performs a key role in preserving confidence in the euro, thereby continuing its long record of fighting against fraud, as old as money itself.
Trust, counterfeiting and security are the three highlights of this exhibition, presented in parallel with the museum's collection. Extraordinary tools, documents and objects provide a context for the topics, allow the money we use every day to be tested using laboratory equipment, reveal the marks and secrets proving the genuineness of coins and banknotes, and demonstrate the physical characteristics that make the euro a secure and reliable means of payment.
From the 28th of November 2018 until the 23th of February 2019.
