Nefertiti (ca. 1370 BC . 1330 BC) was the Great Royal Wife (chief consort) of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten. Nefertiti and her husband were known for a religious revolution, in which they worshiped one God only, Aten, or the sun disc. Nefertiti had many titles including Hereditary Princess (iryt-p`t), Great of Praises (wrt-hzwt), Lady of Grace (nbt-im3t), Sweet of Love (bnrt-mrwt), Lady of The Two Lands (nbt-t3wy), Main Kings Wife, his beloved (hmt-niswt-3t meryt.f), Great Kings Wife, his beloved (hmt-niswt-wrt meryt.f), Lady of all Women (hnwt-hmwt-nbwt), and Mistress of Upper and Lower Egypt (hnwt-Shmw-mhw).

She was made famous by her bust, now in Berlin's Neuse Museum, shown to the right. The bust is one of the most copied works of ancient Egypt. It was attributed to the sculptor Thutmose, and it was found in his workshop. The bust is notable for exemplifying the understanding Ancient Egyptians had regarding realistic facial proportions. Some scholars believe that Nefertiti ruled briefly after her husband's death and before the accession of Tutankhamun as Neferneferuaten, although this identification is a matter of ongoing debate.

The amazing coin set "The Fresco Under The Dome", depicts the Last Judgement, masterpiece of Italian artists Brunelleschi and Vasari, in Florence Cathedral. The coin consists of 9 edgeless minted and impressively colored silver bars, which all put together to form one coin unit. Shaped as 8 trapezoidal coins plus an octagonal coin with a hole in the middle. Limited to only 500 sets worldwide!
The coin depicts the inside of the dome with the fresco of the Last Judgement, begun by Giorgio Vasari and for the most part completed by Federico Zuccari and collaborators.

Basilica of Saint Mary of the Flower
The Basilica of Saint Mary of the Flower is the main church of Florence, Italy. Il Duomo di Firenze, as it is ordinarily called, was begun in 1296 in the Gothic style to the design of Arnolfo di Cambio and completed structurally in 1436 with the dome engineered by Filippo Brunelleschi. The exterior of the basilica is faced with polychrome marble panels in various shades of green and pink bordered by white and has an elaborate 19th-century Gothic Revival façade by Emilio De Fabris.

The cathedral complex, located in Piazza del Duomo, includes the Baptistery and Giotto's Campanile. The three buildings are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site covering the historic center of Florence and are a major attraction to tourists visiting the region of Tuscany. The basilica is one of Italy's largest churches, and until the development of new structural materials in the modern era, the dome was the largest in the world. It remains the largest brick dome ever constructed.

The cathedral is the mother church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Florence, whose archbishop is currently Giuseppe Betori.

Coin with incomparable beauty and value makes a perfect memento to one of the most representative masterpiece of Italian Renaissance, "The Sistine Madonna", painted by Raphael. To mark the 500th birthday of this masterpiece, Andorra will issue its very first commemorative kilo coin ever!
Coin with a particular rectangular shape and a top part as convex ellipse arch depics the opera "Sistine Madonna" also called La Madonna di San Sisto, an oil painting by the Italian artist Raphael. For many people it remains the supreme example of western painting, and its popularity is virtually as great as that of the Mona Lisa. The coin’s obverse depicts the Principat d'Andorra emblem.
The Sistine Madonna is a painting by the Italian High Renaissance artist Raphael, circa 1512–1514. It is housed in the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister (old masters) of Dresden, Germany.
The canvas with the Virgin, Child and Saints Sixtus and Barbara, usually called the Sistine Madonna, is characterized by an imaginary space created by the figures themselves. The figures stand on a bed of clouds, framed by heavy curtains which open to either side. The Virgin actually appears to descend from a heavenly space, through the picture plane, out into the real space in which the painting is hung. This is seen by the active focal point in Madonna's knee. The gesture of St. Sixtus and the glance of St. Barbara seem to be directed toward the faithful, whom we imagine beyond the balustrade at the bottom of the painting. The Papal tiara, which rests on top of this balustrade, act as a bridge between the real and pictorial space.
The painting was probably intended to decorate the tomb of Pope Julius II. It was for some time located in the convent of St Sixtus in Piacenza and was later donated by the monks to Augustus III of Saxony.
The two putti at the foot of the painting and the figure of St. Barbara have often been reproduced in popular culture, such as Christmas

Offered here is a true spectacle of numismatic craftsmanship - a 24-piece, full-color, proof-quality silver coin devoted to Leonardo da Vinci's famous sketches and drawings as a draftsman, with the world-renowned Vitruvian Man design as a centerpiece! A breathtaking presentation, the complete full-color 24-coin collection measures a huge 166.8 mm x 240 mm, and comprises over 1-Kilo of .999 fine silver!
The Genius of Leonardo Da Vinci
Leonardo da Vinci had incredible powers of observation, seeing the world around him like no one else. Leonardo's interests and areas of study varied so greatly that many of his works never saw completion. During his time in the service of the Duke of Milan, he only finished about six works over a period of 17 years.
This 24-piece set comes together to form one single coin unit, $24 Dollar face value. Each piece of silver features a full-color, edgeless design showing one of da Vinci's many innovative drawings, that when placed together form a completed picture of the famous Vitruvian Man surrounded by sketches of various inventions conceived in the mind of this great master! Some of the sketches depicted on the set include : organ cannon, battle chariot, giant crossbow, flying machine, mainspring, tank, parachute, weighing machine, and many others.
The complete 24 piece silver coin comes presented in its fully assembled form, protectively sealed within a perspex case which still allows full access to the coin designs on the face, and the 24 effigies of Queen Elizabeth II on the back. The 24-piece coin and perspex case, the timber frame, the fabric-lined timber codex display unit and the timber stand are all carefully packaged within a COLOSSAL, lift-top timber box with the words "The Genius of Leonardo da Vinci - 1452-1519" laser-etched into the top.
Display Options
Supplied with the set is a timber case designed to look like a bound codex, with a portrait of Leonardo da Vinci taken from one of his own sketches laser-etched on the front. Setting the coin in its perspex case within the supplied timber frame inside the codex-styled case provides a spectacular way of displaying this marvel of numismatic ingenuity. The inside of the codex case is lined with soft red fabric, creating an eye-catching contrast against the rich timber hue of the frame and the old-time parchment coloring of the coin itself. The set also comes with a timber stand in which the perspex case rests, creating a grand centerpiece display for any discerning numismatic collection.

The backrest of the Golden Throne of Tutankhamen looks exactly like this gold coin. Extremely detailed color applications and a Rhodium finishing make the coin look very authentic. The motif shows the famous Pharaoh Tutankhamen and his wife Anchesenamun. The Throne was found by Howard Carter in 1922 in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt.

Each collection has a replica of the golden Throne included. The 24k gilded throne shows the collector how the whole throne looks in total. Here you can see that the two lion heads were at the end of the seat. The Throne is secured in a small carton with a transparent plastic lid.

A very special thing of the Masterpiece’s of Art series is the fact that there are real Swarovski® crystals inserted in the coin. The 24 stones look like a shiny frame for the gold bar. This is the first time that there is a highlight crystal in the middle of the top of the frame. And it is also the first time that the Swarovski® crystal frame itself has a gold application.
