2013 Andorra Silver Madonna Under The Fir Tree Proof
An Iconic Piece of Renaissance Art!
The Renaissance produced some of the finest art in human history. Much of the art was centered around religious figures, as the Roman Catholic Church remained a central cultural and political center of power. Religious paintings often depicted saints and other important figures in Catholicism, but none were more central than Jesus and His mother, the Blessed Mother. This work of art portrays Mary as the mother of the infant Jesus, as the two share a look that only a mother and child can. It humanizes the figure of Jesus, underscoring the traditional teaching that He was fully human, as well as divine.
- SIXTH COIN IN THE SERIES – This 2013 Virgin Madonna Under Fir Tree is the sixth coin in ‘The Renaissance Madonna’ series. The collection features various artistic portrayals of the mother of Jesus.
- STUNNING COLORIZED 2-oz SILVER PROOF – The coin was struck from 2-oz of 99.9% fine silver at a private mint. The image features colorization that represents the six basic colors that a painter has on his pallet.
- ANDORRA LEGAL TENDER – Each Silver Madonna Under Fir Tree Proof is worth 15 Dinar in Andorra. The small, mountainous nation is situated in the Pyrenees Mountains between Spain and France and has played host to several stages in both countries’ grand cycling tours.
- A LIMITED MINTAGE – Only 3,000 of these coins were issued, well below the demand of collectors. GovMint.com is now offering 50 to our customers.
Second only to Jesus himself, the Blessed Mother has played a crucial role in Christianity, and in particular Roman Catholicism. She has been rendered in countless artistic pieces that show her purity and humanity, especially as the mother of newborn baby Jesus. This coin shows a stunning rendering of the mother and child by Lucas Cranach. The fascinating history of this piece includes two stays in the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Wroclaw, Poland. Though the painting was spared from damage during World War II, it was damaged in hiding and forged and replaced by Siegfried Zimmer, who was hired to restore it in 1946. After nearly seventy years, it was returned to the Cathedral in 2012 by a collector. The Cathedral lost out on decades of holding this remarkable painting, and you will do the same if you don’t act now to add this coin to your collection!
