The Numismatic Room was established in 1883. The initially modest collection expanded mainly thanks to the generosity of private benefactors such as Henryk Bukowski. The 1903 donation of Emeryk Hutten-Czapski’s collection resulted in a radical change in the rank of the Room, which became the repository of the most representative collection of Polish coins, medals and banknotes, featuring a number of unique objects (e.g. Bolesław Chrobry’s Gnezdvn Civitas denarius or Władysław Łokietek’s ducat).
