Description of obverse and reverse The obverse of the coin bears a portrait of Klimt based on a photograph by Moriz Naehr from about 1917/1918, framed in a square, that brings to mind the canvas of a painting. The use of the square is also to highlight one of the most common shapes repeatedly used by Klimt in his paintings. In the bottom right corner of the square is Gustav Klimt’s signature based on his signature that he used on his many paintings. To the right of the square is a spiral, much like Klimt used, to ornament the coin. Also on this side the country of issue “REPUBLIK ÖSTERREICH” or Republic of Austria, the face value of 50 euros and year of issue, 2012 appear. The reverse shows a portion of the famous painting of Adele Bloch-Bauer I. In the bottom left of the design field is the letter «K», the first letter of Klimt’s last name.
A brief annotation A prime example of Klimt’s «golden phase», «Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I» is the first of the artist’s masterpieces to feature in our superlative Gustav Klimt and his Women series.
