The Vitruvian Man is one of the most recognizable works created by Leonardo da Vinci in approximately 1490. It is also known as known also as “The proportions of the human body according to Vitruvius”.


The drawing depicts a man in two superimposed positions with his arms and legs apart and inscribed in a circle and square. It represents da Vinci’s concept of the ideal human body proportions and is kept in the Galleria dell’Accademia, in Venice, Italy.


On the other hand, there is a much more modern invention done by Wilhelm Röntgen in 1895 – the X-rays. He discovered their medical use when he made a picture of his wife’s hand on a photographic plate formed due to X-rays. The photograph of his wife’s hand was the first photograph of a human body part using X-rays.


Both works have advanced the understanding of the human body by leaps and bounds. That is why this coin is the combination of the historic artwork of da Vinci and the essential modern invention of Röntgen. This shocking looking coin combines some of the best minting technology and colourization to create a one-of-a-kind piece. It comes in an elegant collector’s box together with the CoA. The mintage is limited to only 999 pieces.
