The first coin in the series Imperial Art presents the art and architecture of ancient Mesopotamia. Mesopotamia is the oldest civilization in human history, the first state institutions, schools and legal codices. We owe its civilization solar calendars, irrigation canals, surgery, organized trade, culture, music, and even the wheels of vehicles. The list of their achievements seems to be endless. To this day delight us beautiful buildings such as the Ishtar Gate, the palace of Sargon II and Hanging Gardens of Babylon.
