Commemorative Medal for Emanuel A. Ziffer, “Father of the Bukovinian Railroad System”

It is due to the great commitment and tenacity of Paul Brașcanu that the Romanian State Mint has coined a commemorative medal in honour of Emanuel Alois Ziffer, the “Father of the Bukovinian Railroad System”, in an edition of only 23 pieces (3 silver / 17 copper alloy). More details about the project can be found in the (Romanian) project description just here. In due consideration of his engagement related to the acknowledgement of Emanuel Alois Ziffer’s role as the “Father of the Bukovinian Railroad System”, the Federation of Jewish Communities of Romania decorated Paul Brașcanu by the Medal for Friends of Jewish Communities of Romania in 2014.
