Coin Story

The Mona Lisa at the Prado in Madrid was thought to be just another fine copy, with added eyebrows and an odd black background. But curators at Spain's national art museum announced a startling discovery: the painting was actually executed by an artist in Leonardo da Vinci's workshop at the same time as the original. Conservators believe the artist could be Francesco Melzi, one of Leonardo's favorite pupils. The Mona Lisa is widely believed to be a portrait of Lisa Gherardini, a Florentine merchant's wife, and the copy makes her look younger and more seductive.

Reverse Design

The reverse of the coins feature two paintings of the Mona Lisa, which are slightly different from one another. Both coins are partially gold-plated and come with a stone insert (red and blue). The images of the Mona Lisas are colored, and are fitted perfectly into the silver coin.

Obverse Design

The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, the year, the country of issue and the face value.

Packaging

The Jewels of Art - Mona Lisa Siblings silver coins come encapsulated, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. They come in a beautiful presentation case, which is doing a great job in staging these special coins.
