Madonna and child is a painting that has been endlessly recreated by inspired artists throughout the years, most notably during the Italian art renaissance. This particular interpretation was painted by Giovanni Battista Salvi il Sassoferrato sometime during the 15 century. The painting depicts the Virgin Mary cradling the Baby Jesus carefully in her arms. The radiant depiction of this art perfectly captures human qualities and encapsulates the unbreakable bond between mother and child.
The rich, warm colours have been meticulously carried across from the original work to this uniquely shaped legal tender coin. The reverse features Mary and Christ as they originally appeared on canvas. The exquisite gold plate of this coin further accentuates the original gold paint laid down by Sassoferrato over 600 years ago and effortlessly brings it to the modern day. The obverse features a tiled rose-effect texture that calls back to Mary’s affiliation to them within Catholicism. Queen Elizabeth’s effigy is also featured here, marking this coin as legal tender within The Republic of Ghana. Demand for original paintings featuring Mary and Christ were highly sought after during the 1500’s and we expect this new release to follow the same path.
