1994: London, UK
1st ICOMON Meeting
ICOMON is the international committee for Money and Banking Museums, under ICOM, the International Council of Museums. The idea of a formal entity of numismatic museums was conceived in the early 1990s by an inspiring group of professionals, under the encouragement of Christiane Logie, curator of the Museum of the Belgian National Bank. The aim was to cover the neglected perspective of museology, in parallel with the academic field of numismatics. In 1994, this group met in London, where they formed the ICOMON Board. The following year, ICOMON was officially registered by ICOM. Mando Oeconomides was chosen as the Chair of the first ICOMON Board.
