Doge’s Palace “SOS. Venice – End or Beginning?” 1 oz Silver Coin
Doge’s Palace “SOS. Venice – End or Beginning?” 1 oz Silver Coin features Canaletto’s famous painting “Return of the Bucintoro to the Molo on Ascension Day”. Its reproduction, vividly reflected on the reverse of the coin thanks to high-end digital printing, depicts a historic seat of the city rulers. The Doge’s Palace is a splendid example of the Venetian Gothic architecture, formed under the influence of Byzantine and Moorish styles. The images of a winged lion and a kneeling doge from its facade were meticulously etched onto the coin’s reverse thanks to advanced high-relief minting technology. This elegant relief frame complements the work of art by Canaletto.
