Description of obverse and reverse
The reverse of the coin reproduces the incredible front view of the famous sculpture by Antonio Canova – Tre Grazie. An exceptional high relief and the use of a special paint to recreate the sculpture’s natural marble look, emphasizes the extraordinary beauty of this piece of art in miniature. All around the reverse, a floral decorative pattern completes the coin. On the right side of the reverse, the wonderful logo of the series and the inscriptions: “ETERNAL SCULPTURES” - the name of the series and “TRE GRAZIE” – the name of the coin. On the bottom of the reverse, the year of issue written in Roman numbers: “MMXX” – 2020. 

The obverse of the coin reproduces the back view of the sculpture, using the same finishes and marble effect. All around of the obverse, a beautiful decorative pattern. On the left side, the Coat of Arms of Palau and the inscriptions: “REPUBLIC OF PALAU” – the issuing country and “10 DOLLARS” – the face value.
A brief annotation
The idea was to reproduce a sculpture into a coin. The beautiful sculpture by Antonio Canova, Tre Grazie is dedicated to the three famous goddesses of Greek mythology, Aglaia, Euphrosyne and Thalia, daughters of Zeus, where they are shown naked while with their arms they embrace in a delicate embrace. The coloring is very important on this series, because it recreates the effect of marble. Finally, a highly refined spatial arrangement allows the work to convey a demure eroticism.
