The issue is part of the book series Coin Collections and Coin Hoards from Bulgaria.

There are 832 coins listed in the catalogue – Greek, Thracian, Macedonian, Roman Republic, Roman Provincial and Byzantine dated 4th century BC – 8th century AD.
The book has been presented at the XV International Numismatic Congress in Italy, September 2015 and part of the editions have been gifted to some of the most renowned numismatists from Germany, Belgium, France, Italy, USA and UK. Copies of the book have been prepared for the specialised libraries of the neighbouring Balkan countries.
These marketing activities allow all interested in numismatics to get acquainted with some of the most valuable coins in the museum finds. Academic exchange is also stimulated as important and previously unknown information becomes available.
The series of books about museum numismatic collections has been highly valued by specialist as timely and useful source of information. That is why the authors and the museum management consider the issue of second volume dedicated to the Pazardzhik museum collection.
