The Museu de Valores do Banco Central, located in Brasília, the Federal District of Brazil, is home to two distinct collections. The numismatic collection comprises banknotes, coins, and other printed values, gold bars, medals, and numismatic curiosities related to money and its manufacturing technology. The artistic collection encompasses 554 works, including paintings, drawings, engravings, and sculptures, primarily from Brazilian artists associated with modernism.
The Museu de Valores do Banco Central is situated in the basement of the headquarters of the Central Bank of Brazil, occupying an area of about 1,300m². The museum features five rooms with permanent exhibitions. These exhibitions provide a comprehensive overview of the history of money in Brazil, from the first coins brought by Portuguese colonizers to the latest issues before the creation of the Central Bank of Brazil.
One of the highlights of the Museu de Valores do Banco Central is its exhibition of gold in various formats. This display emphasizes the process of melting, refining, and minting gold. Visitors can appreciate the Canaã, the largest nugget on display in the world and the largest ever found in Brazil, adding a unique attraction to the museum's offerings.
