1 oz 999 Fine Silver Coin – Republique du Tchad 2023 – 5000 Francs CFA
Fine art pieces of all kinds can be blended together in some cases, with ease. The piece that depicts Edvard Munch and Van Gogh shows these two talents in the foreground with a blend of the backgrounds of their works behind them in the background. These two artists have unique styles but both employ broad brushstrokes that you can clearly see. Munch is famous for creating The Scream and van Gogh has many famous paintings to his credit like Starry Night.
The combination of Starry Night and The Scream with The Great Wave makes for a blend of some of the very best paintings that have ever been made. The Great Wave by Hokusai is a woodblock piece that is one of the most famous Japanese art pieces that has ever been made. The Scream was meant to capture a moment when Munch thought that he felt “a scream” pass through the evening sky. The Starry Night was created when van Gogh was in therapy for his mental illness and he painted the scene that he saw out his window. All of these pieces depict a state of mind and they make a seamlessly combined crossover piece with layers of meaning.
On a canvas of 9 x 7cm, a new minting technique called “Bi-Metal Max” was applied to give this piece its remarkable weight while keeping its proportions true to the actual painting. This is made possible by combining 14 oz of copper as a base with a top painting layer of 1 oz of 999 pure Silver, resulting in a high relief. This is a limited edition of 688 pieces only. Each piece is packaged and delivered with a Certificate verifying its edition number and authenticity.
