Title: Coins in Bucharest
Post by: mrbadexample on May 29, 2018, 02:12:47 PM
Afternoon all.  :)

I’m sure there’s a thread somewhere for where to buy coins when on holiday, but for the life of me I can’t see it.

This weekend I will find myself in Bucharest. Is there anywhere my girlfriend can stand tutting with her arms folded whilst I rummage through a tray?  >:D

Thanks, MBE.

The Numismatic Society of Romania, Popa Tatu St., 20, Bucharest has a small store and may be able to guide you to other places.

I places like that, I usually look for pawn shops.

You may want to consider the Museum of the National Bank of Romania, 8 Doamnei Street. If so, register as fast as you can and don't forget to carry your passport.

Well due to a very limited time we didn't find this, although we did find a shop in the old town (closed at the time we were there, unfortunately).

But I did find a little antiques fair in the old town where I was able to purchase a few little bits. Overpriced, no doubt, but I probably had to pay the "tourist tax" so not too bad. :)
