Pierre Auguste Renoir
Pierre Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) was one of the most well known leaders of the Impressionist painting movement that was defined by visible brush strokes, ordinary subject matter with an emphasis on light and unusual angles. Renoir has many famous paintings hanging in well-known galleries all over the world, with several included in The Louvre in Paris.
The reverse design of this unique tribute coin features a striking portrait of Renoir styled from one of the few photographic portraits he sat for. Behind the portrait is a full-colour reproduction of one of Renoir's famous portraits, Actress Jeanne Samary. At the top of the coin are the years of Renoir's life, with his full name at the bottom. The obverse shows another famous painting, Girls at the Piano (1892), also in striking colour but with the central figures struck from the silver.

Investment Note
This coin has a total mintage of only 20,000, which is very low for such a reasonably-priced silver proof. Taking into account the large size, the ever-popular theme featuring a world-renowned artists and three major masterpieces, the superb colorization, the unusual shape, and the oveall beauty of the design, we feel that this is a great buy-and-hold for any numismatic portfolio.
