This side also comprises the same violet Tiffany-style glass pane breathing life into the whole antique-finish coin design. The legendary tradition of Tiffany stained glass employed a full palette of colors and patterns to create unique and iridescent pieces of art. At the bottom of the coin, there are the legends denoting its name and issuing year. To those collecting exquisite coins or simply art lovers this Tiffany coin will be a real catch as well as a perfect gift idea.
