Description of obverse and reverse The delicacy of the composition is underlined by the varying textures on the coin thanks to contrasting techniques of polishing and sanding. The obverse pictures Nureyev in a powerful, yet graceful arabesque in front of the Palais Garnier Opera House. The reverse depicts the dancer at 25. His expression, emphasized with dark makeup, looks confidently towards the future. The background is inspired by a kilim (an embroidered wool rug) that he particularly loved. A kilim, reproduced in mosaic, still adorns his grave today in the Russian cemetery at Sainte-Geneviève-des-Bois.
A brief annotation A new series by Monnaie de Paris with a design concept entrusted to Christian Lacroix: on each coin an artist will be portrayed in a place associated with his art. This first year, the series carries us into the world of dance with a tribute to Rudolf Nureyev (17 March 1938 – 6 January 1993), the celebrated Russian dancer and choreographer. He was Director of the Paris Opera Ballet throughout the 1980s, during which time he revolutionized the art of ballet, leaving behind a powerful legacy.

Начало серии - посвящено Великому русскому хореографу... Дизайн хорош, и в исполнении есть что-то своеобразное. Семь можно поставить смело.

килимский узор неудачно вышел

Реверс наверно более удачный.

Хорошая монета - посвящение русскому танцовщику. Смотрится необычно.
