Technologically Advanced Coin Honors Van Gogh


Recommended Posts

Three masterpieces of Vincent Van Gogh are featured on a new, low-mintage silver dollar issued by the Mint of Poland (Mennica Polska) for the nation of Niue Island.


This coin was minted at the historic Warsaw Mint and constitutes the latest entry in the mint's Great Painters of the World ongoing series.


The rectangular coin reproduces three masterpieces by Van Gogh (two in full color): Starry Night, one of the Sunflowers series, and a self-portrait. In addition to its rectangular shape, the coin also features colorization on both sides, and three different-colored zircon crystals embedded in it.
