The Polish American
Numismatic Society (PANS) is organizing a grand European journey
that will take participants through Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia
and Russia. The trip will introduce participants to the rich
numismatic and cultural heritage of Eastern Europe and Russia. The
tour, titled “PANS Numismatic Educational Tour of Hands Across The
Borders of Eastern Europe and Russia,” will take place Sept. 9 to 25.
PANS president Les Rosik promises it to be a “once in a lifetime” opportunity.
The trip includes a full schedule of numismatic sites, including a
visit to the Numismatic Cabinet at the Hutten Czapski Money Museum in
Krakow, Poland; the Royal Castle numismatic cabinet in Warsaw; the
Warsaw National Museum’s numismatic department; the Warsaw Mint
Museum; the Money Museum of the Bank of Lithuania in Vilnius,
Lithuania; the National Museum in Riga, Latvia; the Bank of Estonia
Museum in Tallinn, Estonia; the Hermitage Museum’s numismatic
department in Saint Petersburg, Russia; and the Pushkin State Museum
in Moscow; along with various non-numismatic stops and tours.
The price of the tour, which starts in Krakow, Poland, is $3,700.
While the price includes the tour and tickets, the flight back from
