Stoll (since 2007), was able to purchase and acquire additional coins, so that the collection reached its contemporary content in 2015. The Professorship is – due to missing financial aid by the university – not able to purchase additional coins.

Cultural Foundation of Saxony-Anhalt - Moritzburg Art Museum Halle (Saale)

Definition
The Moritzburg Art Museum Halle (Saale) was founded 1885 and is located in the Moritzburg, a castle of the early 16th century. The spectacular extension (opened in 2008) in the once ruined west and north wings becomes visible only at second glance and particularly in the exhibition rooms themselves. The art museum of the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt shows works from its own collections, predominantly from the Middle Ages to the baroque period, classical modernism, which forms the main focus, and the contemporary period. The collections of paintings ans sculptures, graphics an fotography, arts and crafts design and of the state coin collection include around 250,000 objects. The foundations of the numismatic collection are, in addition to acquisitions of contemporary medals made after 1900, above all the foundations of district court counsel Buchholz and merchant Heynemann made in 1910 and 1923. In 1950, the „State Coin Collection of Saxony-Anhalt“ was founded programmatically with these stocks, which at that time also the care of the local coin hoards and the scientific advice for the museums of the country was transferred. The Cabinet now has a collection of about 120,000 coins, medals and banknotes. The main topics are the medieval and modern coinage of the Central German countrys, the modern German medal art and the paper money of the 20th century. The universal collection includes objects from antiquity to the present from all continents and cultures.
