A PA3-exclusive event! The tour will be conducted by PA3's own Sev Onyshkevych '83 and major contributor to the exhibit.

This exhibit covers the history of banknotes (paper money) from early Chinese banknotes, the earliest European paper money and focuses on the design elements of money. It merges the university's US and Confederate paper money collections and Princeton resident (and PA3 Vice-President) Sev Onyshkevych’s collection of 50,000 worldwide banknotes. A highlight includes the earliest known work by John James Audubon (an engraving for a New Jersey banknote), which is shown along with the Princeton first edition of Audubon’s folio as well as a steel printing plate of Audubon’s Birds of America. Banknotes designed or printed by Ben Franklin, Paul Revere, Alfonse Mucha, Eero Saarinen and numerous others are also part of this historic exposition.
