Huntington visited the Iberian Peninsula on his own, collecting books, manuscripts, coins, paintings, sculpture, and artifacts, and even participated in archaeological digs. He made it his intention to assemble coins from every period and in every land where Spanish influence was felt, however remotely. The 37,895 pieces form the most spectacular collection of coins relating to the entirety of Spanish history that is housed outside of Spain. Completed by 1905, the resulting collection was encyclopedic in content and filled with stunning rarities.
Among the many institutions that Archer Huntington sponsored, he founded The Hispanic Society of America (HSA) in 1904 as a free museum and research library for the study of the arts and cultures of Spain, Portugal, and Latin America, which it remains today. He gave land at Audubon Terrace, in the present day Washington Heights neighborhood of New York City, and funded the design and construction of a building by his cousin Charles Pratt Huntington. In 1949, Archer transferred ownership of his collection to the Board of Trustees of the HSA, but his collection never was accessioned as part of the HSA collection.
