Purpose: This study aims to investigate the common methods of organizing coins and bills in museums and to propose a coordinated system for the proper and integrated organization of these museum objects.
Methodology/ Approach: The present study is based on descriptive survey method. The theoretical parts of this study have been conducted using library methods and the data has been collected using a survey methodology and through interviews that the researcher has conducted with the staff of museums containing coins and bills (in Iran and around the world). A total of 65 museum staff were interviewed (13 Iranian and 52 non-Iranian). The interviewees were selected from various museums containing coins and bills with regard to geographical distribution and global scope.
Findings: The findings of the study indicate the lack of an integrated method for organizing coins and bills in museums. Based on the research findings, a coordinated system is suggested for the integrated organization of coins and bills at museums in Iran and around the world. The interviewees believed that a coordinated system would be efficient and practical.
Conclusions: The findings of this study indicate that the integrated organization of coins and bills at museums through a coordinated system leads to enhanced management of coins and bills, improves collaboration and interaction between museums, and contributes to enhanced utilization of these museum objects. It is considered essential that the officials and managers of museums containing coins and bills take necessary measures to deal with this issue.
