Crystal Skull represents the first coin in a brand new series by CIT which astonishes us with its mystical beauty. Vanitas as a symbolic work of art was a common genre in Netherlands art of the 16th and 17th centuries and expressed the idea of life transience and inevitability of death. The paintings created in this genre included numerous symbols among which are: skulls as a reminder of the certainty of death, fading roses as the symbol of vain love, books which represent the sciences and fading cinder which means the departure of human soul.
The reverse side of the coin includes black proof surface finish and partial colour applications. A skull in the center consists of a pad-printed coloured detail and of SWAROVSKI crystal. The inscriptions denote the name of the series and the year of issue. The obverse side shows the coat of arms of Equatorial Guinea, the name of the country and the face value. The coin rests in a beautifully designed case.
