Baroque
Baroque stands for the art history epoch between 1570 and 1770. Above all, the term characterises a whole awareness of life and is applied to architecture, sculpture, and painting, philosophy, literature and theatre, fashion, music and dance. Baroque is a byword for affluence, splendour and motion. Baroque loves drama and spectacle; it is loud, flashy and colourful. The Baroque world is a stage and its life is a theatre. The latest Tiffany coin shows the perhaps illustrious example of such Baroque art; the Palace of Versailles. The “Sun King”, Ludwig XIV (1638-1715), reconstructed his predecessor’s small hunting lodge, at the gates of Paris, into a total baroque work of art. The gigantic complex with more than 2000 rooms not only served as an entertainment location. It was rather an elaborate sophisticated instrument for absolutistic political power. The complex was supposed to bond the scheming higher nobility close to the king and announce Ludwig’s message to the whole world: I am the states affluence and the only representative of God on the earth and nobody can match my power. “L’état – c’est moi!”

 
Design

The reverse of the coin gives an insight to the magnificently equipped Hall of Mirrors, in the palace of Versailles. On the bottom of the reverse, the inscriptions: “TIFFANY ART” – the name of the coin, “2009” – the year of issue and “MANNERISM” – the name of the epoch. The obverse shows the fountain of Parterre d’eau and in the background the palaces front garden. The design also presents the Coat of Arms of Palau and on the bottom of the obverse, the inscription: “10 DOLLARS” – the face value.
