History, at times, gives certain objects special significance, and they become legendary. Unlike money that changes hands daily, legendary coins and currency are larger than life, and tell a unique history of the United States. "Legendary Coins and Currency'' shows how major events in the nation's history have played a role in the evolution of America's money and determined how a select few pieces of currency have become important symbols of the American experience. This highly interactive online exhibition, from the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, includes a game and timeline and allows students to rotate and zoom in on objects from the National Numismatic Collection for detailed examination. A glossary linked to the exhibition will help students learn challenging vocabulary.
