Where change is the only constant
Businessman Dinesh Modi’s cluster of beautifully designed hexagon-shaped galleries inside the Mumbai University’s Kalina campus hold only three per cent of his coin collection. But the Dinesh Modi Numisnatics Museum showcases the best of his hoard.
Fish-shaped Chinese coins from 4BC, currency from the Harappan civilisation, temple tokens, coins from the reign of Mughal and Hindu emperors and banknotes from the colonial period. Look out for Dinesh Modi Numismatics Museum’s presentation of Shah Jehan’s dinner-plate-sized commemorative gold coin.
