Coin Story

Issued as part of the extremely successful Masterpieces of Art series, this eye-catching silver coin boasts the beautiful design, 16 authentic Swarovski crystals as well as the limited mintage quantity of 1898 pieces worldwide. This Cook Islands proof coin has been struck as a tribute to "Lady Godiva" (circa 1898) by a British writer and painter in the Pre-Raphaelite style John Maler Collier. The beautiful reverse design features the colored image of Collier’s legendary painting that depicts Lady Godiva, or Godgifu in Old English, a Saxon woman who was the wife of the Danish Lord Leofric. Probably one of the most famous naked woman of all time, she once rode naked through town in order to persuade her husband to relieve the residents of the heavy tax burden he was imposing.

Reverse Design

The reverse features the famous painting "Lady Godiva" by John Collier. It is surrounded by 16 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.

Packaging

The Masterpieces of Art - John Collier "Lady Godiva" silver coin comes encapsulated, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. It comes with a presentation case, which is doing a great job in staging this special coin.
