Man’s curiosity as well as the drive to research is unlimited. It is of burning interest for us to know what lies behind our neighbour’s hedge, the next hill or the horizon.
We have explored the highest heights and the deepest depths of the earth. We have stood on the moon and would like to go to Mars. Our telescopes observe starburst-galaxies millions of light years away. At the same time we are advancing into the tiniest matter. We decipher our DNA, search for the Higgs particles and accelerate protons. Their size? A millionth of a nanometre - and one nanometre equates to one millionth of a millimetre!
Power Coin is proud to present this exclusive coin, a project realized thanks to the great nano-technology led to the state of the art by a brilliant German Engineer: Dr. Stephan Sauter and his company Nano Jewellery. The Florence Cathedral ceiling, Vasari's Last Judgment, is entirely depicted on the Nano Chip embedded in the coin, realized with a cutting-edge technology able to reproduce all details visible in full with a microscope. The beauty and complexity of this masterpiece can be held today on the palm of your hand!

The octagonal shaped chip depicts the fresco of Duomo di Firenze ceiling, Basilica of Saint Mary of the Flower, the main church of Florence, Italy. The Last Judgment is Vasari's fresco begun in 1568, and completed by Federico Zuccaro in 1579.
When the past joins the future: the fresco is entirely depicted on the Nano Chip embedded in the coin, realized with a cutting-edge technology able to reproduce all details visible in full with a microscope.
The antique finish and the high relief with ultra high details complete this masterpiece and make this coin unique.
