Casa de la Moneda Tours

Aside from the thrill of “discovering” new lands, the Spanish conquistadores were endlessly driven by thoughts of discovering gold. Here at Bogota’s Casa de Moneda, walk amidst the spot where gold was first minted in Colombia, having stood in this spot since 1622 when the King of Spain ordered the production of gold coins in Bogota. Since money and power seem to go hand in hand, this museum that’s based around Colombian currency has many political undertones, where the type of currency that’s been minted through the years shows fascinating parallels between the political era and Colombia’s historical events. From the initial barter of ceramics and pots that was used by indigenous tribes, the currencies weave a chronological tale as viewed through production of money.

Practical Info

The Casa de Moneda is located inside the Banco de República complex in the heart of downtown Bogota. It’s in the same complex as the Botero Museum, and an easy visit on a small group sightseeing tour of discovering downtown Bogota.

Did You Know? In 1948, when vandals tried to rob the building in a time of political protests, chemicals used in the finishing of gold were used to asphyxiate and fend off thieves who tried to break through the doors.
