The impressive architecture of the city has always been a source of inspiration for the great Italian painters. The eighth coin from the series “S.O.S. Venice – End or Beginning?” features the 16th-century renaissance basilica San Giorgio Maggiore. Its brilliant white marble gleams in the sun, forming the focal point of the view from every part of the bustling waterfront Riva degli Schiavoni. A magnificent altar inside the church depicts God the Father standing on a gilded globe supported by the Four Evangelists. Featured in high relief, the sculpture frames the cityscape by Canaletto imprinted on the coin’s surface with the use of high-end digital printing.
The coin is available in two versions. The first coin with face value of 2 New Zealand dollars was struck in fine silver with the use of high-relief minting technology, what additionally increased its artistic value. The second coin with nominal value of 50 New Zealand dollars was minted in 999.9 sterling gold. Very low mintage – only 40 pcs – confirms its uniqueness! If you want to add it to your collection, do not hesitate!
