Simply beautiful; though photographs of this coin show it clearly to be highly detailed and exquisitely struck, in real life... it is gobsmacking.
Produced in High Relief on BOTH sides of the coin, this coin features an impressive recreation of a large Baroque marble statue by Italian artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini. The statue depicts the Abduction of Proserpina by Pluto, sometimes also referred to as the Abduction of Persephone by Hades.
Using black proofing techniques AND a special marbling finish, this coin is a sight to behold. The third in a high quality series, this may well be in the running for the coin of 2018!
