Coin with incomparable beauty and value makes a perfect homage to "The Sistine Ceiling", a masterpiece of Renaissance art repainted between 1508-1512, by the Italian artist Michelangelo, possibly the greatest artist who has ever lived. This spectacular 1 kg coin consists of 33, like Michelangelo´s structure, edgeless color-printed bars of 5 different sizes, which all put together to form one coin unit.

The Sistine Chapel ceiling is entirely reproduced on 33 coins edgeless that enhance the beauty and complexity of Michelangelo's masterpiece. The cut of the money is designed to respect the painting's architecture: on the lateral side, there is 6 coin square-shaped representing the four Pendentives and the Prophets Jonah and Zechariah; the central part shows nine stories of the Genesis represented on 9 coins rectangular shaped; 8 coins depict the Webs and 10 the Sybils and in the upper and lower edges a total of 8 currencies for sails and other 10 for Sybil and the Prophets. 
The coins are issued a legal tender in Niue Island. The obverse of each coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
