These stunning Silver Proofs celebrate the work of the artist known as El Bosco. One of his most famous works is titled the Garden of Earthly Delights, that’s the painting these coins depict. This painting was created in the early 1500s, it can be found in the Museo del Prado in Madrid today.
3 Piece Silver Proof Set – Easily Displayed
There are 3 coins in this set. Two of these have a rectangular shape while the third is shaped like a square. This is very fitting because the original Garden of Earthly Delights painting was a triptych, it had 3 panels that fit together.
The Spanish Royal Mint struck these Silver Proofs. Each one is made of .925 fine silver. This set was issued in 2016 as part of Spain’s Treasures of Spanish Museums series. Only 2,000 of these sets were produced. The Silver content of the set is just over 8.68 troy oz.
Classic El Bosco Painting
The design on each coin is true to the original painting. The obverse of each shows the lower portion of its respective panel of the painting. The inscriptions here state the date, issuing country, face value, “EL BOSCO,” and the name of the series.
The reverse of each displays a colorized version of its respective panel. Each panel in the original painting has a theme and they are thought to be chronological.
True Triptych Design
It starts with a depiction of Paradise. Adam and Eve can be seen relaxing. The landscape behind them is clean and beautiful. There are even a few other creatures pictured here.
The next portion of the painting is depicted on the square coin. There are many people shown here, they are all nude and appear to be enjoying life. A number of fruits, odd creatures, and structures can be seen here as well.
The other rectangular Proof shows El Bosco’s depiction of Hell. Smoke, fire, and darkness are all throughout the background. Some of the people depicted in this design have been wounded while others seem to simply appear terrorized.
Luxurious Original Packaging
This set is in GEM Proof condition. It is still in its original packaging from the Spanish Royal Mint. The red display box allows all 3 pieces to be viewed simultaneously side by side, just as the painting would be seen.
