DESCRIPTION

Taking a step back in time, this coin represents one of the most well-known literary works of the 14th-century — the epic poem, Divine Comedy created by the renown Italian writer Dante Alighieri. The poem tells the story of Dante’s journey through three Divine Realms: Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. As an allegory, the Divine Comedy represents the journey of the soul toward God.
