Royal Numismatic Museum of Demirelia (Norwegian: Det Kongelige Demirelske Numismatiske Museum) is a numismatic online and physical museum owned by the Royal Demirelian Museums Group (RDMG). Planning on the museum began in early July 2020, and it was opened on 18 July 2020.
The museum is a subsidiary of and is operated by the Royal Demirelian Museums Group. It’s founder and current curator is Patrick Renwick.
The idea to create a museum out of the extensive private collection belonging to the Demirelian King had existed for a number of years. When in July 2020 a boom in the foundation of new businesses in the aftermath of the Concordiagate scandal in Abelden occurred, the Royal Demirelian Museums Group was founded, and shortly afterward the Royal Numismatic Museum. Development on the museum started immediately, with the establishment of a website and the design of a logo the following day.
Following multiple days of development, the museum was formally opened by King Patrick on 18 July 2020.
The museum collection numbers a total of about 2000 coins and 12 banknotes. Of the coins, 1 is gold and 260 are silver.
