The popular and successful Masterpieces of Art series silver coins by Cook Islands has been replenished with a new piece of art. The $20 coin of .999 silver with gilding and Swarovski elements is dedicated to the Pietà (1498-1499), a sculpture by Michelangelo. The worldwide mintage is quite symbolic – only 999 pieces.

The obverse of the Cook Islands coin traditionally bears the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Along the rim of the silver coin, there are the inscriptions denoting the name of the Queen, the face value of the coin and the name of the issuing country.

The reverse of this gorgeous coin is embellished with a tiny copy of the masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture that is now kept in St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City. Balancing the Renaissance ideals of classical beauty with naturalism, it depicts the body of Jesus on the lap of his mother Mary after the Crucifixion in Michelangelo’s unique interpretation. The Pieta is known as the only piece Michelangelo ever signed. The reverse image is decorated with twenty-six Swarovski crystals. There is also the legend indicating the name of the series. The gilded bar comes separately, so you will be able to attach it to the coin by yourself. This small silver masterpiece is a must-have for any serious collector as well as a great gift idea!
