The History Museum of Serbia presented the Seal of Stefan Nemanja, which was recently auctioned abroad and due to the quick action was bought by the museum.

The director of the museum, Dušica Bojić, announced that the Seal was bought for 12,000 euros, and noted that the value of this artifact is small compared to what it represents for Serbia.

The seal, which dates back to the second half of the 12th century, was bought after an agreement reached by the Historical Museum with the heads of the auction house “Artemide Aste” from San Marino and the previous owner.

“The initial price was 1,000 euros with more than 70 auctioneers biddng for it. When the price reached 8,000 euros, further bidding was stopped with the intervention of the Museum. Thanks to the agreement between the representatives of the auction house, the Greek owner and the museum, the agreement was reached and the Seal returned to where it belongs,” said Bojić.
