ALBA MADONNA REVIEW - Perfection in Art - 2 Oz Silver Coin - Niue 2017

We love Art in all its form and for this reason today I would like to introduce to you this magnificent Silver Coin: Alba Madonna.

Do you know this painting? It is a 1510 masterpiece made by Raphael and it is perfectly depicted on this 2 ounces Silver Coin.

This masterpiece also presents a wonderful and detailed gilded frame, but now let's chat about the coin's details!

Do you like Art and paintings?

I would like to spend some words about this incredible painting: what makes this masterpiece so unique is the particular choice of the painter Raphael to depict the Virgin sitting directly on the ground instead of placing her on a heavenly throne.

Furthermore, the round-format style was popular in Florentine painting and the influence of the Florentine masters Michelangelo and Leonardo is also apparent in the work.

The reverse of the coin shows Mary, Jesus and John the Baptist.
With one hand John the Baptist and the baby Jesus are holding a cross and all three figures are looking at the cross. Over their heads we can see a gentle halo.
On the top of the reverse, the inscription: “ALBA MADONNA”, the name of the coin. On the bottom part, the inscription “RAPHAEL”, the name of the Italian painter.

I have to say, this case is pretty different from what we are used to see: we have a wooden case with this circular aperture that displays the coin and, on the bottom part, the inscription “PERFECTION IN ART”, the name of the series.

You can open it as a book and on the right part we find the silver coin fixed into a wooden frame with the inscriptions: “ALBA MADONNA - RAPHAEL - 1510” on the bottom part. Right here we have the certificate of authenticity.

The obverse of the coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions “NIUE”, the issuing country, “2017”, the year of issue, “10 DOLLARS”, the face value, “2 OZ 999 SILVER”, the weight of the coin and the fineness of the silver and “ELIZABETH II”, the name of the Queen.

This coin has impressive shiny colors and a limited mintage of only 999 pieces worldwide.

I could go on all day writing about this Silver Coin, but I think that the best way to truly appreciate it is holding it in your hands. If you find this coin of your interest and wish to know more about it, you can do so by clicking here.

Stay tuned and remember: collect, invest, enjoy!
