Wertpapierwelt - Museum of Historical Shares and Bonds
There are countless museums of art, culture and natural history all over the world, and almost every human achievement has been the subject of exhibitions. Almost – for until very recently, securities, without which the economic exploitation of inventions and discoveries would not have been possible, were not given the space they deserved.
A museum for old shares and bonds? We have all heard of stocks and shares, but few of us have actually seen one. What does a share look like? What do shares tell us about the issuing company's history, and what happens to them after the company's demise?
The Foundation "Collection of historical securities" has looked deeply into these questions. The acquisition of the world's most significant collection of historical securities paved the way for the first international securities museum.
The collection comprises over 7,000 exhibits from over 130 countries. With the museum Wertpapierwelt, the Foundation "Collection of historical securities" allows the public a vivid and exciting look at old bonds and shares. Throughout the year, changing thematic exhibitions highlight different aspects of the world of securities.
