We’ve got a new coin that entered The Art That Changed The World series by Niue. Its unique design fully reflects the Romanesque style, hence the name. The coin is a diamond-shaped piece of .999 fine silver with artistic motifs, original themes
and rich decorations. The mix of easily perceptible proportions and a harmonious layout with a colored agate insert make it a real catch for art lovers!
The obverse displays the passage between the narthex and the nave of the Basilica of St. Mary Magdalene in Vezelay, France. It is decorated with a genuine agate insert. There is also the traditional effigy of her Majesty Elizabeth II, the Queen’s name, the face value of the coin, its issuing country and year.
The antique finish reverse features a piece of the Basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore decorated with a blue agate insert. Built in the 9th century, the church is the largest Romanesque church in France and one of the outstanding masterpieces of Burgundian Romanesque art and architecture. The basilica was claimed to guard the relics of St. Mary Magdalen and became a major medieval pilgrimage destination. The art coin comes housed in an elegant wooden presentation case; the mintage is limited – a mere 3 333 pieces worldwide. Grab your piece of Romanesque Art!
