Description of obverse and reverse The obverse replicates the work titled «Isabel II, queen of Spain», painted by Federico de Madrazo y Kuntz. This work is housed in the Prado Museum, in Madrid. It is one of his best portraits of Queen Isabella II. Madrazo depicts the Queen enhancing her royal dignity with the attributes of sovereignty: the scepter in her right hand, and the Royal Crown, that rests in a cushion. The reverse exhibits a replica of the work titled «The Great Captain visits the Battlefield of Cerignola», painted by Federico de Madrazo y Kuntz. This work is housed in the Prado Museum, in Madrid. Here Madrazo shows the moment in which Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba, el Gran Capitán (the Great Captain), after defeating the French army in the Battle of Cerignola, finds the corpse of Louis d’Armagnac, the leader of the French troops, who in the past was his friend and allied. Unlike other paintings of contemporary history, this one takes no joy in victory, and the only evidence of the battle is the smoking background.
A brief annotation Federico de Madrazo was Director of the Prado Museum and President of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando, as well as court painter to Queen Isabella II of Spain.
