Rheinisches Landesmuseum / Trier

The Rheinisches Landesmuseum Trier is one of the most important archaeological museums in Germany and documents 200,000 years of history and cultural development of the entire region from prehistoric times to the end of the 18th century.

On 3,500 square metres, the museum displays around 4,500 objects, including the largest collection of mosaics north of the Alps, the gigantic funerary monuments from Neumagen with vivid scenes of everyday life, and now once again the largest Roman gold coin hoard in the world.

For the new coin cabinet, REIER planned, manufactured and installed a free-standing central display case exhibitung the gold treasure with its approximately 2,500 ancient coins, as well as an approx. 22 m long wall cladding with eight integrated display cases with LED lighting and nine light boxes with LED area lights.

For the display cases, exceptionally high safety requirements had to be implemented.

After almost three years of closure, the coin cabinet with the world’s largest antique gold coin treasure can now be visited again.
