Exhibition "Bayerische Werte"

From tomorrow on you can visit "Bayerische Werte", a unique exhibition on scripophily from Bayern. The event takes place at the IHK-Stammhaus für Munich und Oberbayern and presents stocks and bonds from the immense Uto Baader Collection.

Bayerische Werte, "securities from Bavaria", is jointly organized by the Bayerisches Wirtschaftsarchiv (BWA) and its founders, the Bavarian Chambers of Commerce and Industrie (IHK's). In the twenty-five years of its existence, the BWA has collected original documents from more than 2,500 companies. Archives of more than 170 companies have been taken over. 

"Haus für Handel und Gewerbe" in München, 1000 Mk. bond, 1899
The building illustrated on this bond was built by Munich's Chambre of Commerce and the Münchner Börse between 1899 and 1901. It still exists and is located at Maximiliansplatz 8, Munich, just around the corner of the current headquarters of the IHK für München und Oberbayern.

On the occasion of BWA's 25th anniversary, Uto Baader, founder of the Baader Bank and Chairman of the Bayerische Börse, entrusted the BWA his tremendous collection of historic Bavarian securities (about 4,500 certificates).

With her team, Dr. Eva Moser, manager of the BWA, carefully made a selection from that collection. These gems, spanning more than two centuries, both illustrate the economic history of Bavaria and the artistry of Bavarian security design. Fifty-six of these have been printed and enlarged in high resolution with accompanying explanation notes on display panels.
