INSURED SHIPMENT / OWN COLLECTION

A beautiful silver coin struck from 1 oz of pure silver. It depicts a famous painting by Caravaggio. The coin is reminiscent of a painting, so it has been gilded to imitate the frame of the work of art. An excellent gift idea for all art and painting lovers.

Medusa is one of two depictions of Medusa's head by Caravaggio. The painting was commissioned by Cardinal Francesco Maria Del Monte, who presented it to Ferdinand I de' Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany. The Medusa's Head exemplifies Caravaggio's excellent skill in manipulating optics, which enabled him to offset the effects of the concavity of the ground.
