Coin Story

A numismatic masterpiece, made of 3 oz of pure silver 999 with 17 authentic swarovski crystals inlaid in this 55 mm coin, issued by Cook Islands. Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn was a Dutch painter and etcher. He is generally considered one of the greatest painters and printmakers in European art and the most important in Dutch history. His contributions to art came in a period of great wealth and cultural achievement that historians call the Dutch Golden Age when Dutch Golden Age painting, although in many ways antithetical to the Baroque style that dominated Europe, was extremely prolific and innovative, and gave rise to important new genres in painting. The painting may be more properly titled by its long since forgotten name "The Company of captain Frans Banning Cocq and lieutenant Willem van Ruytenburch preparing to march out". In the 18th century the painting became known as the "Night Watch". It is prominently displayed in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, as the best known painting in its collection. "The Night Watch" is one of the most famous paintings in the world.

Reverse Design

The reverse features the famous painting "The Nightwatch" by Rembrandt. It is surrounded by 17 brilliant Swarowski crystals. The image offsets itself from the rest of the silver coin, due to the applied color.

Obverse Design

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