Description of obverse and reverse The obverse of the gold coin features a replica of the painting titled "The Burial of the Sardine" by Francisco de Goya y Lucientes. This work is housed in the Museum of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando, in Madrid. This is one of the most highly acclaimed works of Goya's career for its enigmatic nature. It shows two beautiful women in white dresses and pretty masks, dancing happily, accompanied by two men and two disturbing figures who threaten one of the dancers. Presiding over the festival, we have the mocking, ironic face of the god Momus, traditionally linked to Carnival. The reverse of the gold coin depicts the work entitled "Fernando VII on Horseback" painted by Francisco de Goya y Lucientes. This painting is housed in the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Museum of San Fernando, in Madrid. King Ferdinand VII is depicted on horseback, wearing the uniform of Captain General, with dark frock coat, riding boots, two-cornered hat, baton and medals, along with the sash of the Order of Charles III. The horse is lifting up its front legs in a prance. For this portrait, Goya requested that the King posed for him in person. The King left Spain and did not return until 1814, when he was finally able to see this portrait for the first time.
A brief annotation This coin set is the third issue in a collector coin series named "Treasures in Spain's Museums". The coins comprising this series replicate classic exhibits housed in the museums in Spain. This 3rd set is composed of five coins, each of which recreates a work painted by a master artist such as Goya, Velazquez, Arcimboldo, Rubens, Tintoretto or Madrazo. The cincuentín in this set has the distinction of being the first coloured coin produced by the Spanish Royal Mint.
