Bangladesh Bank on Wednesday received 100 pieces of ancient currencies
from Bangladesh Numismatic Collectors’ Society.
Members of the society handed over the currencies to BB governor Atiur Rahman on the day.
The currencies were from the Sultan dynasty, a BB press release said.
The BB earlier had requested people to enrich the museum by donating ancient notes and coins.
The central bank has already collected a good number of currencies of the British period and Sultan and Mogul dynasties, said the release.
Besides, a significant number of coins and notes that were found at Wari-Bateshwar in Narsingdi are preserved at the Takar Jadughar, the BB press release added.
