Shipwreck Databases Western Australian Museum


The numismatic database allows for specialised searches for coin and coin details that the Western Australian Museum has found during Maritime Archaeology expeditions. This project has been supported by the Commonwealth Protecting National Historic Sites 2015-16 projectPNHSR2-10 Revealing Batavia's Treasure grant.

Use the basic search function to find a general type of coin, or use the advanced search to find a specific coin artefact. Alternatively, you can browse numismatic images of all digitized shipwreck numismatic artefacts found in this database.
