Comes with complete Original Government Packaging including boxes and COA. Each coin is unique, the coin pictured is the one you will receive! This stunning flamboyant coin is dedicated to the world’s most popular handwork, the Murrine Millefiori of Murano in Italy. Struck from 20 g silver 999 in proof quality, the coin has a diameter of 65 mm, enormous for this weight. Its special decorating technique comprises small glass discs being slowly melted in a mould to form the required shape, which is then set into a silver coin. Thus, uniqueness is achieved and no two coins are the same! The obverse bears the effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II surrounded by the following inscriptions: the Queens name, the face value of the coin and its issuing country. The reverse of this artwork is a relief multicolored heart in the center of a glass disc with unique patterns. The glass processing technique Millefiori was already known in Ancient Rome and is nowadays mainly continued on the island of Murano near Venice. The finished artwork explains without words why Millefiori means thousand flowers in Italian. The mintage is limited to only 999 pieces worldwide.
