The Para-numismatic collection of the Bucharest Municipality Museum features around 20 000 objects, divided into several subcategories depending on the artefact type: medals and plaquettes, insignias, decorations, sigils, relevant documents, of incontestable historical value for the modern period. All these types of objects found within the collection constitute a precious historical source illustrating several ceremonial moments, such as anniversaries, commemorations, important historical events or ones tied to notable figures of the time, images from the past, faces of note-worthy figures from the political, cultural or artistic spheres.
