Cook Islands 5 dollars War and Peace Tolstoy Set of 3 Silver Proof Coins 2012. Face Value : 5 dollars. Dimensions : 30 x 40. War and Peace Silver coins in commemoration of year 1812. In 2012, Russia will celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Patriotic War of 1812. Sberbank and Mint of Finland are marking the anniversary with the War and Peace silver coins, which commemorate Tolstoy s epoch-defining masterwork and, at the same time, the national cinema of Russia. The impressive commemorative coins illustrate Leo Tolstoys War and Peace (in Russian, , Voina i mir), which he wrote between 1865 and 1869. The silver coins have been minted with images of three of the novels characters as they appeared in Russian director Sergei Bondarchuks 1968 historical epic film. The characters Natasha Rostova, Pierre Bezukhov and Andrei Bolkonsky have all been immortalised in their own coins. In the war of 1812, Russian troops defeated Napoleons army as he attempted to invade Russia. War and Peace is a magnificent historical chronicle of the 1812 Napoleonic invasion that takes place over well over a thousand pages. A story that is close to Russian hearts Tolstoy based War and Peace on letters kept by his relatives and fleshed out the story using his imagination. War and Peace is widely considered to be one of the most significant works in world literature, as it captures perfectly the features of the era and is like a cross-section of Russian society as a whole. Among the novels cast of 580, there are portraits of historical figures as well as invented characters. Of all the characters, it is thought that Pierre Bezukhov and Andrei Bolkonsky are Tolstoys alter egos. The main thread of the story focuses on the lives of the Russian nobility in the salons and on the farms of St Petersburg and Moscow and, above all, on the events of 1812. Tolstoy wanted to dispell any notions of glamour about war and give it a distinctly Russian feel. He depicted great men up close, shaking off any romantic visions. Meanwhile, it has been shown that Tolstoys novel revealed the Russian peoples real attitude towards life. An Oscar-winning epic The silver coins are also a tribute to Russian cinema, as they bring the story of War and Peace to life with depictions of characters from the award-winning film. The story was transferred from page to screen in 1968 by the acclaimed film director Sergei Bondarchuk, whose interpretation of the classic novel was awarded an Oscar, the most important accolade in international cinema. The film brought to life Russias history and past with a contemporary perspective. Bondarchuks epic film is a stunning evocation of Russia and her people during the tempestuous days of the Napoleonic era. Director Sergei Bondarchuks film is completely faithful to Tolstoys classic novel, playing out even the smallest details and capturing on film the almost tangible emotions and atmosphere of the book.
