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. "The Birth of Venu" is a 1486 painting by Sandro Botticelli. Botticelli was commissioned to paint the work by the Medici family of Florence, specifically Lorenzo di Pierfrancesco de' Medici under the influence of his cousin Lorenzo de' Medici, close friend to Botticelli. It depicts the goddess Venus, having emerged from the sea as an adult woman, arriving at the sea-shore. The painting is on display at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy.

Reverse Design

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