The National Bank of Romania launched a 31 grams silver coin for numismatic lovers in order to celebrate 175 years since the birth of Romanian painter Nicolae Grigorescu. The reverse has painter Nicolae Grigorescu’s portrait and signature; the inscription “NICOLAE GRIGORESCU” and the artist’s life span “1838-1907”, whereas the coin’s obverse has a graphic composition suggestive of a palette, featuring the image of the “Nicolae Grigorescu” Memorial Museum in Câmpina; the face value “10 LEI”; Romania’s coat of arms; the inscription “ROMANIA” and the year of issue “2013”.

For this occasion, the bank issued 500 coins, priced at RON 360. The coin is sold in a special capsule, together with a brochure written in Romanian, English and French and an authentication certificate signed by the National Bank of Romania and Central Cashier.
