Sunflowers Fine Silver Coin
Beautifully minted in silver, this limited edition Sunflowers Fine Silver Coin has been created exclusively with the East India Company to commemorate 125 years of Vincent van Gogh’s masterpiece Sunflowers and the National Gallery’s Sunflowers exhibition January – April 2014.
Encapsulated in a superb archival quality Perspex frame, this limited edition coin is one of only 500 bespoke pieces made especially to celebrate this remarkable painting.
This legal tender coin is minted to the highest ‘proof’ standard in coin minting, and illustrated using the very latest printing technology available. Housed in a stylish wooden case it is presented complete with its own individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity to guarantee the quality and low mintage of the issue.
Each coin has a denomination of $5 (NZ), weighs 40 grams in Fine Silver and features a reproduction of the artwork on the front and the image of Queen Elizabeth II on the back.
A special keepsake or lasting memory of the Sunflowers painting, this coin is a perfect gift for someone special, or a rare and unique collector’s piece.
The Sunflowers Fine Silver Coin will be followed in June 2014 with the release of a second coin inspired by Hans Holbein the Younger’s The Ambassadors. The final coin in this year’s collection will launch in September to coincide with the National Gallery’s exhibition Rembrandt: The Finest Years 15 October 2014 – 18 January 2015.
