The celebration of the XVI National Congress of Numismatics. Treasures and monetary findings: protection, study and musealization hosted by the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya is an unavoidable occasion to expose to the public all the monetary sets guarded in the reserves of the Gabinet Numismàtic de Catalunya and publish them online accessible for everybody.

The Museu contributes directly with the aims of the Congress and complies with the premise of enabling the accessibility to their collections, and in particular, of these sets that are relevant for the knowledge of circulation and treasure to number in a determined time. It is, also, an invitation to visit the permanent numismatic hall to roam in the past in a singular itinerary throughout a thread about the treasures and monetary findings highlighted. Finally, this is one more way to welcome the congressmen.
