DESCRIPTION

2020 marks the 500th anniversary of the death of a famous Italian painter and architect Raphael. Together with Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino was one of three undisputed masters at the apogee of High Renaissance.

In circa 1513-1514, this well-know artist created his masterpiece – the «Madonna Della Seggiola» painting. It portrays Mary embracing the child Christ, while the young John the Baptist devoutly watches. The coin is dedicated to this painting and perfectly depicts it. Thanks to the digital printing technique, it was managed to render the painting as realistic as possible. In 1858, Nathaniel Hawthorne called this painting “the most beautiful picture in the world” after having seen it through “a hundred engravings and copies”.

A true masterpiece minted in fine silver!
