About us

The collection of coins and medals commemorating John Paul II found in our Museum is the largest and the most beautiful in the world. In no other place can be found such a large number of numismatic artifacts which feature the Pope who has such a special place in the hearts of the Polish people.

Only in our Museum you can see:

  • Beatification coins and coins from the period between the wars and immediately following the World War II, the so-called countermarks.
  • 12-ounce gold coins with the face value of 200 thousand zł minted in the 1980s, including the most important one of which only 5 specimens were minted, marked with the word "sample" (Polish: "próba").
  • A very valuable coin from the island of Haiti, which is a rarity on the numismatic market.
  • One-kilogram coins – minted from all metals.
  • The smallest gold coins which weigh merely half a gram each.
  • Coins minted by all methods known to numismatists.
  • Coins decorated with Swarovski crystals.
  • The unique author’s versions of coins and medals, both cast in gypsum and minted from metal.
  • Replicas of the coat, stole, ring, zucchetto and crosier which belonged to John Paul II.
