Description of obverse and reverse The obverse of the coin is also worked out with an exquisite delicacy. At the top of the coin, which is an ellipse, there is the year of issue, face value, coat of arms and name of the issuing country. The lower part of the coin is made in the form of a column and decorated with elements of an artist’s palette on the sides. On the one hand, it symbolizes the solidity and beauty of old-school workmanship and, on the other hand, refers to the ancient traditions of monetary relations. The whole composition is based on the original ornaments of the Renaissance. In the central part of the coin’s reverse there is a full-color image of Raphael Sanzio painting “The Small Cowper Madonna”. At the top, bottom and on each side of the coin there are ornament elements of the Renaissance which enhance the effect of the painting being its wonderful frame and creating a sense of completeness and harmony.
A brief annotation The Renaissance period is associated with the names of great masters. A special place among them occupies portraits of Madonna with a Child as a symbol of purity, love, happiness and beauty. The second coin of the “Madonna of the Renaissance” series dedicates to the world-famous painting by Raphael Sanzio “Small Cowper Madonna”. The coin has an original shape - a rectangle with the upper part as a convex ellipse arch.
