Two week internship at the Royal Mint Museum
We would like to offer the opportunity for current students to undertake research and document our eighteenth-century token collection, some 300 items, with a view to publishing the records through our online catalogue.
The Museum has a reference library to help with the cataloguing process. Many of these tokens came from the collection of Sarah Sophia Banks and it is hoped the applicant can undertake research into their provenance using Banks’ catalogue of tokens held at the British Museum.
Each year the British Numismatic Society offers bursaries for Museum placements. All undergraduate and postgraduate students currently studying at a UK university are eligible to apply.
