Case and certificate
This marvellous 1 ounce coin presents the famous 'Scream' painting by the renowned Norwegian painter, Edvard Munch. This new coin represents the second instalment of the new 'Treasures of the World' series which has sought to represent three of the most famous and widely-recognised paintings.
The reverse side of this new coin presents a coloured image of the 'Scream' painting. The square shape of the coin and its frame-like outer border enable the coin to better present the painting.
The obverse side of the coin bears a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The obverse side also includes the inscription of 'NIUE ISLAND', the country in which the coin was minted, together with the year of mintage (2019) and the face value of the coin (1 dollar).
'The Scream' is a name given to this composition created by Munch in 1893. The agonised face in the painting has become one of the most iconic images in the world of art, and is seen to symbolise the anxiety of modern man.
The coin was struck in pure silver (999). It is part of a limited mintage of just 999 coins. The coin is presented in a topical case with a certificate of authenticity.
