The tenth issue of premium edition in the “Masterpieces of Art” series proves to be a true masterpiece in coin minting. This impressive coin consists of two parts: 3 oz silver 999 coin and ¼ oz gold 9999 coin inlay, forming together a beautiful image of famous painting by Leonardo da Vinci, “The Last Supper”. In addition to a smart combination of minting techniques, the coin is provided in a luxury presentation case and includes a miniature replica of the Basilica of Santa Maria.
The obverse of the Cook Islands coin traditionally bears the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The inscriptions denote the name of the Queen, the face value of the coin and the name of the issuing country.
The reverse features the replica of “The Last Supper” painting, decorated with 18 Swarovski crystals, colorized and gilded. The golden reverse-incuse minted inlay depicts Jesus and the apostles in full color. The details of the silver and the golden coins are exquisitely fine and deep, thanks to micro grade minting.
