This stunning set by Niue comprises seven 10-dollar silver bars each featuring a sculpture by Michelangelo. Each edgeless proof coin is struck from 2 oz silver .999 and measures 36х48 mm. You get 436,4 g of silver displayed on an elegant stand and housed in a luxury wooden box - great enough to take your breath away! The worldwide mintage is limited to 450 sets!
All the coins in the set are rectangular and have got the same obverse: the effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II in the center with a couple of inscriptions around it. They include: the Queen’s name, the face value of the coin, its issuing country and year.
The reverse of each coin is a superbly struck replica of one of the world-renowned sculptures by Michelangelo, the great artist of his time. These are: the Deposition, Bacchus, Madonna of Bruges, Pieta, David, Moses and Crouching Boy. The author of some of the most historic sculptures of all time, Michelangelo always considered himself to be a sculptor rather than a painter. His greatest works were inspired by his passion both for the material beauty of marble and for the spiritual life. This silver set is a must-have for every art lover! Besides, a piece of art makes the perfect gift!
