Coin Story

A numismatic masterpiece, made of 3 oz of pure silver 999 with 16 authentic swarovski crystals inlaid in this 55 mm coin, issued by Cook Islands. The painting is on display in Staatliche Museen, Berlin, along with other famous artworks of the Baroque Art period. As usual in a Rembrandt portrait, this is a combination of keen psychological analysis with a subtle, powerful music of lights and shadows. His faces are always full of meaning and of character, strongly individualized through emphasis on a few distinctive contours. They are never bland, impersonal, regular masks, but bear the marks of experience, thought and feeling, which tempt us to wonder what reserves of personality lie behind them. In this psychological interest Rembrandt is akin to Leonardo da Vinci, and also in his reliance upon soft, mysterious shadows as the basis of his form. There is little range or brilliance of color in either. But Rembrandt had profited by sixteenth century Venetian painting, and knew how to blend his colors with light in a way that Leonardo did not, and so to make the most of what he used.

Reverse Design

The reverse features the famous painting "Goldhelm" by Rembrandt. 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 - Rembrandt "Goldhelm" 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.
