In 1913 Josip Brunšmid, director of the Zagreb National Museum Archaeological Department acquired a specimen of the Pietro Bembo medal, attributed to Benvenuto Cellini, for 45 Autrian crowns in Munich (Helbing), from the holdings of the numismatic dealers' Zschiesche and Koeder from Leipzig, then in liquidation. On the obverse there is the bust of Pietro Bembo, bareheaded, bald, with long beard, in bishop's cloak, r., and a Pegasus r. on the reverse. How the first version of this portrait medal (Bembo not yet nominated cardinal, with short Venetian beard, and the Pegasus in a myrtle-wreath), made during his visit to Padua, was described by Benvenuto Cellini himself in his autobiography. Cellini also mentioned how he made dies for Alessandro Medici (1532-1537), Grand-Duke of Florence. In addition, in the Zagreb numismatic collection there is a Florentine gold scudo of Alessandro Medici (Medici crest / elaborate Greek cross), unearthed in 1864 on the shores of a small bay, Devčić-Draga, near Devčići (Karlobag) on the north-east of the Adriatic Coast, underneath a stone slab, together with a treasure of various other gold coins. Seven coins from this treasure were purchased by the Royal Regency Council of the Triune Kingdom of Croatia, Slavonia and Dalmatia for the National Museum in Zagreb in the same year.
