Overview

This museum, situated within the Treasury, contains a collection of more than 20,000 items including coins, medallions, wax models and equipment used in the minting process. The papal medallions begin with Pope Martin V who started the first mint. Amongst the wax models the series by Benedetto Pistrucci is worth noting; he was a famous Roman engraver who worked at the London mint and he is responsible for the St. George on horseback that is found on the English pound coin. Take an identification card with you because you will need to leave it with the concierge after filling out a form. Admission: Free.
