The island of Saint Helena has released a new set of silver coins paying tribute to the Virgin of the Rocks by Leonardo da Vinci, the Italian Renaissance artist and inventor. There are two versions of the paintings: one belongs to the National Gallery and the other is kept in the Louvre.

The obverse of the oval-shaped gold plated coins represents the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Along the rim of the coins, there are also the legends denoting the Queen’s name, the face value of the coins, the name of the issuing country and year.

Each coin features one of the Virgin of the Rocks, both painted by Leonardo in Milan , where he had moved from Florence. It is still the source of some debate which version of the Virgin of the Rocks is the earlier one and there is no proof either way. Both paintings depict Mary in a grotto in the wilderness. The coins are embellished with ruby and sapphire inserts. Housed in a luxurious presentation case, this set of silver gold-plated coins has got the extremely limited mintage quantity of only 1508 pieces, so don’t miss your chance to possess your own masterpiece! It will make a great addition to any collection as well as a perfect gift for those interested in world art.
