Silver coin Maxipes Fík proof
One hundred of intriguing love stories written by the founder of the Italian Renaissance prose Giovanni Boccaccio – it is the Decameron, one of the most famous literary works dealing with the joys and dangers of love, that inspired The Czech Mint to create a series of ten silver medals. The first of them was issued in 2013 on the occassion of the 700th anniversary of the writer's birth. Every year, during five years, two pieces of art are created and they are attractive challenges for refinement of your numismatic collection. Another addition is a medal, with the motif of the story About the law, in an extraordinary proof quality.
The topic of this story is traditionally realized by academic sculptor Vladimír Oppl. The obverse side of the medal features a scene depicting the moment when the husband caught his unfaithful wife in flagrante with her lover. Background of the obverse side is formed by the motif of the tree of life that links the entire series. Another common feature of the issues from the cycle is an erotic token - Roman Spintriae. The reverse side of the medal includes the portrait of Giovanni Boccaccio, along with the Town Hall in Certaldo and the house where he lived and worked. Only 500 pieces of the silver medals are ready to embellish your exceptional collection!
