Mural: Explaining the evolution Of Money
The first of its kind in India, the Reserve Bank's Monetary Museum was inaugurated in 2004 by India's President,  Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam. The Museum attempts to demystify money as it evolved from
the age old barter system to the present stored value cards.  On display in the Museum are, coins of various sizes and shapes issued since 6th century B.C. to the present times.  There are also panels of bank notes and instruments of indigenous banking like hundies.  All this is explained through graphic panels in English and Hindi.
