Description of obverse and reverse The obverse depicts a portrait of a six year old Mozart in a suit, given to him by the Empress Maria Theresa (the author of the portrait is presumably Pietro Antonio Lorenzoni, 1763). At the top on the right there is a music sheet, below it - the face value in two lines – "20 EURO”. At the top along the edge - the name of the country – “REPUBLIK ÖSTERREICH” (Republic of Austria). At the bottom there is the year of issue – "2015" and a first part of Mozart’ signature. The reverse depicts a scene from the one-act comic opera "Bastien und Bastienne" created by 12-year old composer in 1768. At the bottom - the name of the opera «BASTIEN UND BASTIENNE».
A brief annotation Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is a great Austrian composer and virtuoso, one of the most popular classical composers in the world. Mozart worked in all musical forms of his time and composed over 600 works, many of which are recognized as pinnacle of creation of symphonic, concert, chamber, opera and choral music. This is the first coin of the series. In total there will be issued three coins, each of them is dedicated to a specific period of the composer's life.

Дизайн не плохой. Но монета меньше унции, да и серебро не чистое....

Удачная монета.
Удачная портретно - сюжетная монета , хотя в унцовке была бы лучше .

Вундеркинд- ребенок, а Моцарт выглядит уже взрослым. Не совсем удачно. На мой взгляд много лишнего.
