Casa de La Moneda
This historic museum, inside the Banco de la República complex, houses the Colección Numismática in the Bogota Mint. The exhibits start with pre-Columbian pots and lead chronologically to misshapen coins with the introduction of a centralized bank in 1880, and the making of the unique tree art on the current 500 peso coin in the late 1990s. Casa de La Moneda is closed on Tuesdays.
