Museu da Moeda Luanda

The Museu da Moeda Luanda, or the Currency Museum of Luanda, is a unique institution in Angola that takes visitors on a journey through the history of money, from the Zimbo to the Kwanza. Managed by the National Bank of Angola, the museum houses extensive numismatic and notaphily collections, supplemented by various artifacts and audiovisual devices that shed light on Angola's past.

The museum's narrative is organized into thematic sections, each illuminating a different aspect of Angola's monetary history. These include pre-monetary forms of payment and other payment methods, stories about individual coins, the iconography of money, the evolution of banking, banknote illustrations, security features, and personal accounts about the role of money in the lives of Angolan citizens.

Constructed over a period of two years and seven months, the museum stretches across a total built-up area of 4,900 square meters, with a net construction area of 3,873.45 square meters within a total land area of 4,425.20 square meters.

An important point of pride for the museum and the country is that every aspect of it is authentically Angolan. From the architectural design to every stone used in the construction, everything is of local origin. This sense of national pride is palpable throughout the museum and is hoped to be shared by every visitor.

In summary, the Museu da Moeda Luanda is more than just a museum; it is a testament to the rich and diverse history of Angola's currency and banking system. It embodies the nation's pride and spirit, offering an educational and insightful experience that celebrates the country's monetary journey. The museum is truly a national treasure, a must-visit for anyone interested in the intriguing history of money in Angola.
