Collection of the Numismatics Section of the National Museum in Lublin consists of over 62,000 items. The most numerous items are coins – over 56,000, from ancient to modern, with a predominance of modern issues, especially Polish ones. The nearly 4,500 objects of medal art include the oldest, 16th and 17th-century Polish medals (the former as 19th-century collector’s copies), an interesting collection of medals from the 18th century and a rich representation of 19th and 20th-century national medals. The collection of nearly 1,900 paper money items consists mainly of Polish banknotes and securities, from the oldest banknotes of the Kościuszko Uprising of 1794, to the contemporary issues of the Bank of Poland. The sigillographic collection consists of 269 pistons and stamps of seals, the oldest of which have a medieval record.
The numismatic collection of the National Museum in Lublin is one of the most important in the country.
