2018 France €10 Silver Masterpieces of the Museums: The Kiss Proof
Rodin’s Romantic Masterpiece Returns as a Gleaming Silver Proof
French sculptor Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) is universally regarded as not only the greatest artist of his era, but also one of the greatest to ever live, even drawing comparisons to the legendary Michelangelo. One of Rodin’s towering masterpieces is The Kiss, a six-foot high marble sculpture completed in 1882 that features an embracing nude couple. Based on the tragic love story between Paolo and Francesca from Dante’s Inferno, the massive work of art stands today as one of the most recognizable sculptures in the world.
Now you can bring home the erotic idealism of Rodin’s The Kiss with this coin, a masterpiece of numismatic art struck by the world-renowned Monnaie de Paris (The Paris Mint). The third installment in the Mint’s Masterpieces of the Museum series, The Kiss is a 10 Euros legal-tender proof struck in 22.2 grams of 90% fine silver. Measuring 37 mm in diameter, it features a detailed engraving of Rodin’s The Kiss silhouetted by a window as if you were seeing the famed work in a museum setting. The coin’s reverse features a collage of famous French museums along with the denomination and the country of issue – REPUBLIQUE FRANCAISE.
The Kiss stands amongst Rodin’s other famous works joining such others as The Gates of Hell and The Thinker to cement his reputation as the founder of modern sculpture.
