Virtus Collection

Renaissance and Baroque Medals

Welcome to the website of the Virtus Collection, a private collection of Renaissance and Baroque medals. The primary focus is on Italian and Papal medals of the fifteenth through mid-eighteenth century, along with a smattering of French, German, and Netherlandish medals.

This website, like the collection, will be perpetually under construction, with new medals added, descriptions updated, and reference information expanded. It is my hope that you will enjoy viewing the fine, though often overlooked, art of sculpture in miniature displayed on this website.
