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, Papal, and French medals, representing in my opinion the pinnacle of artistry and history in medallic art. Due to a fondness for one's home country, a selection of American medals from the first century of the United States are also included.

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