“Virgin of the Rocks” by Leonardo da Vinci has been the second-kilo silver coin issued since 2012 by the Principality of Andorra. “La Vergine delle rocce” - the name of the two nearly identical in composition paintings by Leonardo da Vinci, one of which is on display in the Louvre, and the other in the London National Gallery.
The obverse of the stunning silver coin features the coat of arms of the Principality of Andorra, the name of the issuing country, coin denomination and year of issue. The lower part of the coin’s obverse is richly decorated with fancy engraved ornament.
The reverse of 1kilo silver coin depicts miniature color reproduction of “Virgin of the Rocks" painting created by Leonardo da Vinci. The work represents kneeling Virgin Mary, patronizingly putting her hand above the head of John the Baptist. To the right of the Madonna, an Angel holds the baby Jesus, who raised his hand in a gesture of blessing. The whole scene is full of tenderness and peace, which is in contrast to the landscape background, consisting of steep cliffs. This masterpiece is considered to be a perfect example of Leonardo's “sfumato” technique.
