Campanile di San Marco Gold Coin, by Guardi, 50 Dollars 2016, Series: SOS. Venice – End or Beginning?


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.

  • great gift idea for all art lovers and admirers of beautiful Venice!
  • commemorative and artistic value – interesting design alluding to Venetian Gothic
  • Venice landmarks shown through the prism of paintings by Canaletto and Francesco Guardi

The impressive architecture of the city has always been a source of inspiration for the great Italian painters. Our silver coin “Ponte di Rialto” from the series “SOS. Venice – End or Beginning?”, features Canaletto’s famous painting “The Grand Canal Near the Ponte di Rialto”. Its reproduction, vividly reflected on the reverse of the coin thanks to high-end digital printing, depicts a romantic view over the Rialto Bridge. Like a rainbow arching over the water, the bridge connects the banks of the picturesque strait. Arcades lined on both sides of the walkway create an impression that the bridge is literally hovering above the glittering waters of the Grand Canal. Imagining Venice without its gondolas is hardly possible. One of them was meticulously etched onto the coin’s reverse. This elegant relief frame complements the work of art by Canaletto.
