The Social and Cultural Affairs Welfare Foundation (KIKPE) is a private, public-benefit, non-profit institution which was
established in 1988 and is based in Athens (Greece). The KIKPE Numismatic Collection comprises about 18,750 coins and other
mostly coin-shaped items. The setting-up of the Collection was launched in late 2001; by early 2018, mainly through purchases
from auctions houses in Europe and the USA, the acquisitions had reached the number of approx. 5,000. In autumn 2018 was acquired
by donation the numismatic collection of the Foundation of the Hellenic World (formerly Pfälzer Privatsammlungen = Donat Collection),
which numbers 13,688 coins and other minor objects. The core of the KIKPE Numismatic Collection consists of ancient Greek,
Roman Provincial and Byzantine coins. The issuing authorities of the first category cover almost the entire Hellenic and Hellenizing
world, from Spain, South Italy and Sicily to the Hellenistic kingdoms founded on the morrow of Alexander the Great’s conquests
from the Middle East to Northwest India. The Collection possesses a significant number of coins of Hellenic and Hellenized
cities, which were minted in Roman provinces during the imperial times. The Byzantine section of the collection includes coins
of almost all the emperors, as well as a wide variety of denominations and issues of mints that operated in different periods
of the Byzantine millennium. Acquisitions extend also to Arab-Byzantine and Turkoman coins, coins of the Latin East, etc.
Although these categories are represented by few specimens, they function as connecting links between the periods spanned
by the majority of the coins in the Collection. There is moreover a considerable number of Modern Greek coins of different
alloys. One can catch glimpses of the everyday life of several societies through the Collection’s acquisitions: they can act
as transmitters of signals from the past, summoning the beholder to embark on a journey into time.
In 2001 the KIKPE Foundation acquired also a collection of Greek paper money/banknotes spanning the period from 1822, the
first steps in the creation of the Greek State, to the replacement of the drachma by the euro on 1 January 2002. This collection
is on loan for use (commodatum agreement) to the National Bank of Greece, which has a collection of analogous importance.
