The Museum itself is in a nice old building. The Shop sells modern NCLT commemorative coins
some coin packs and currency notes in folders.

Thanks, I indeed visited it and strolled through the museum too. The shop is really a desk in the corner and the guy showed me a list of available coins. Once I picked them, he simply headed to the steel cupboards and took them out for me. Far cry from the RCM boutique in Ottawa, but I was the only one there and so I felt like I got a VIP treatment. One thing to keep in mind is that only cash is accepted over there.

The "Goldkammer" Museum in Frankfurt

Frankfurt (Hesse, Germany) has a new museum - dedicated to gold. Its exhibition shows gold sculptures from the Bronze Age, ancient jewellery and religious objects from all over the world. But the museum also shows the Rothschild Collection of about 300 gold bars.

Here is a CoinsWeekly article (English) about the place, with some nice photos. And this is the museum website (German). For individual visitors the museum is open daily (except Mon) 11-17 h.
