The Numismatic Collection

The Numismatic Collection of the Archaeological Museum in Zagreb, similar in profile to a cabinet, contains over 270,000 examples of metal coins, bank notes, medals, certificates, medallions, badges, orders, tags, and tokens. The Numismatic Library that operates in the scope of the department is also very important.

The basic divisions created corresponding to the inventory include: Greek (autonomous coinage of the Graeco-Roman cities) and Celtic coinage, Roman Republican, Roman Imperial and Byzantine coinage, coinage of the mediaeval and modern periods, and medallions. While none of these sub-divisions perhaps contain rarities on the international level, extremely valuable collections are held of Celtic coins, Graeco-Illyrian coins, individual medallions, and various hoards preserved from all periods.
