This exceptional 3 oz silver coin is the first release in a new series that is called “Micropuzzle Treasures”. The given series is devoted to a micro-puzzle art and to an outstanding Van Gogh’s masterpiece – “Starry Night”.
“Starry Night” is widely known as Van Gogh's magnum opus. The painting depicts the view outside his sanatorium room window at night. The artist was looking down on a village from an imaginary point of view. It was framed by his newly-discovered motifs: at left a cypress towers skywards, at right a group of olive trees cluster into the cloud, and against the horizon run the undulating waves of the Alpilles. Van Gogh's treatment of his motifs prompts associations with fire, mist and the sea, and the elemental power of the natural scene combines with the intangible cosmic drama of the stars.
The coin features more than 150 minted tiles thanks to the usage of the smart-minting technology. The reverse of the coin reproduces the beautifully colored painting of “Starry Night” by Van Gogh. It is described in an exceptional high relief for the purpose of reproducing and empathizing the extraordinary beauty of this piece of mosaic art in miniature. The obverse of the coin features the Coat of Arms of Palau, surrounded by a wonderful decorative micro-puzzle pattern.
“I don't know anything with certainty, but seeing the stars makes me dream.” – as Vincent van Gogh said about this painting. Let yourself be carried away by the beauty of Starry Night coin!
