More than 400 ancient coins spanning a history of 2,500 years will be on display in a museum in Xi'an, the capital of Shaanxi province.
2016 The World's Eye: Coins on the Silk Road, jointly held by China and South Korea, announced that it would open on Sept 10 in Xi'an Yuanhao Huazang Museum at a recent Beijing event.
Aside from showcasing cultural exchange between the two nations, the exhibition will take a look back at the financial history of the ancient countries along the road's route from Asia to Europe.
After two years of preparation, the organizers revealed that the show will feature up to 430 coins -- 48 golden, 309 silver and 73 copper -- from 58 ancient dynasties, such as the Roman Empire (BC 27 to AD 395) and the Mughal Empire (1526-1858).
