Historic Moneys in the North Carolina Collection
The study of money and money-related material is called numismatics. At the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, which opened to students in 1795, the campus library has accumulated over many decades an array of currencies issued by various governmental authorities and by private banks, insurance companies, and other businesses. The University Library's Herman Bernard Collection contains twenty-four different varieties of gold coins struck by the Bechtler family during North Carolina's gold-rush era.
