Exhibition of Medal Art

Kolomenskoye Museum Reserve hosts exhibition Pages of Russian Medal Art History of XX Century.



Medal art gained particular popularity after 1955, when a new procedure for the medals issuing was approved. At that time, many artists, who worked in monumental sculpture, turned to the creation of special tokens. New medals appeared— on the occasion of significant dates (for example, expedition to the North Pole or breaking of the Siege of Leningrad) and in honor of famous people of the Russian history.
