Established in 1999, Singaria Coin Museum is a one-of-a-kind museum in the city of Jodhpur, Rajasthan, dedicated to showcasing currencies from all over the world. The museum is an extensive effort of preserving history and tracing the development of human civilization through the medium of numismatics. The Singaria Coin Museum is the brainchild of two brothers, the late Devendra Singaria and Subhash Singaria who started collecting coins as a passion and started the museum in 1999.
Before the museum, the Singaria brothers used to exhibit their collection of coins and paper currencies in several fairs and open-air exhibitions at schools and distinct institutions across the country. The Singaria Museum boasts of housing a collection of over 10,000 pieces of different trading modes and economies of India and several different nations. The assortment majorly comprises the currencies (both coins and paper) of India and its evolution over time, from ancient Indian civilization to eras ruled by different kings and rulers such as Mughals, Britishers, and colonies of Dutch and French. the display also has some coin dyes, misprinted coins, and paper currencies from across the globe which is a fascinating sight. For those who wish to delve deeper into the subject, the museum has a library on its premises with books pertaining to the history and existence of currency, economics, and numismatics studies as well.
Administered and maintained by Mr. Subhash and his family without any backing from any trust, foundation, or individual. The family shares a harmonious balance between a private and public space because the museum is their home as well as a public place for visitors, which is a rare and beautiful experience for every visitor.
