The four Raphael’s Rooms (20 frescoes, walls and ceilings), Raphael’s masterpiece, are entirely depicted on the Nano Chip embedded in the coin. Onto the size of a finger nail a very high resolution image is engraved with the technology of microelectronics on an ultra-planar Nano Chip, produced in a dust free environment out of high purity quartz in extreme vacuum. The chip depicts all frescoes (walls and ceilings) of four rooms, Raphael’s masterpiece and the perfect embodiment of the classical spirit of the High Renaissance. In Italian: “Stanze di Raffaello”, located in the Apostolic Palace in the Vatican. When the past joins the future: the 20 frescoes are entirely depicted on the Nano Chip embedded in the coin, realized with a cutting-edge technology able to reproduce all details visible in full with a microscope. The antique finish and the deep relief complete this masterpiece and make this coin unique. The coins are issued as legal tender in Cook Islands. The obverse of each coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Mans curiosity as well as the drive to research is unlimited. It is of burning interest for us to know what lies behind our neighbours hedge, the next hill or the horizon. We have explored the highest heights and the deepest depths of the earth. We have stood on the moon and would like to go to Mars. Our telescopes observe starburst-galaxies millions of light years away. At the same time we are advancing into the tiniest matter. We decipher our DNA, search for the Higgs particles and accelerate protons. A millionth of a nanometre – and one nanometre equates to one millionth of a millimetre! Power Coin is proud to present this exclusive coin, a project realized thanks to the great nano-technology led to the state of the art by a brilliant German Engineer: Dr. Stephan Sauter and his company Nano Jewellery. The four Raphael Rooms are entirely depicted on the Nano Chip embedded in the coin, realized with a cutting-edge technology able to reproduce all details visible in full with a microscope. The beauty and complexity of Raphael’s masterpiece can be held today on the palm of your hand!
