Numismatic objects are collected and presented in the museum as important testimonies to German and European economic and financial history as well as constitutional, cultural and social history. The numismatic collection contains coins, including jetons, medalets and tokens (7,500 objects), medals and plaquettes (7,000 objects), paper money (60,000 objects) and securities (23,000 objects).

In contrast to the collection of Militaria, the numismatic collection does not contain wearable medals of distinction or wearable event medals. In a few cases the dividing line between the numismatic collection and that of Badges is fluent.

The collection continues to be expanded largely through endowments and donations in kind.
