A brief annotation
Francisco de Goya, a Spanish painter, painted for the king of Spain first the Nude Maja. This painting was rejected because of its nature and F. de Goya painted a second painting with clothing. Both paintings currently hang together in a museum. This coin contains both paintings, removing the bar with the Clothed Maja revealing the Nude Maja.
