Will Venice disappear without trace like Pompeii and legendary Atlantis? Will the tremendous forces of nature take over the impressive architecture of the city? There are numerous indications that Venice will soon disappear in the sea depths. The city is threatened not only by rising sea levels, but also by gradual landslides caused by the movement of tectonic plates. The Mint of Poland, concerned about the future of Venice and inspired by its fragile beauty, commemorated its distinctive landmarks in pure silver.
The impressive architecture of the city has always been a source of inspiration for the great Italian painters. Our silver coin “Doge’s Palace”, opening the series “SOS. Venice – End or Beginning?”, features Canaletto’s famous painting “Return of the Bucintoro to the Molo on Ascension Day”. Its reproduction, vividly reflected on the reverse of the coin thanks to high-end digital printing, depicts a historic seat of the city rulers. The Doge's Palace is a splendid example of the Venetian Gothic architecture, formed under the influence of Byzantine and Moorish styles. The images of a winged lion and a kneeling doge from its façade were meticulously etched onto the coin’s reverse. This elegant relief frame complements the work of art by Canaletto.
