The Pietà

The Pietà (1498–1499) is a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture by Michelangelo Buonarroti, housed in St. Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City. It is the first of a number of works of the same theme by the artist. The statue was commissioned for the French cardinal Jean de Billheres, who was a representative in Rome. The sculpture, in Carrara marble, was made for the cardinal’s funeral monument, but was moved to its current location, the first chapel on the right as one enters the basilica, in the 18th century. It is the only piece Michelangelo ever signed. This famous work of art depicts the body of Jesus on the lap of his mother Mary after the Crucifixion. The theme is of Northern origin, popular by that time in France but not yet in Italy. Michelangelo’s interpretation of the Pietà is unique to the precedents. It is an important work as it balances the Renaissance ideals of classical beauty with naturalism.

The 2014 issue of “Masterpieces of Art – Premium Edition”, this coin is expected to sell out in no time, due to extremely limited mintage and the huge request by worldwide collectors. Silver, translucent reflection gold removable bar, micro grade minting, 26 original Swarovski crystals, a booklet, a polyresin pieta sculpture, all inside a luxury case, make this coin a very exclusive numismatic jewel. This coin depicts the “The Pietà” housed in Saint Peter Balisica, sculpture by Michelangelo Buonarroti when he was in his early 20s! The reverse depicts Queen Elizabeth II profile.
