2022 City Views Rome One Ounce Gold Proof Coin

UK22CVR1G : 2022 Rome City Views 1oz Gold Proof
£2,725.00
(VAT Exempt)
From a limited edition of just 200 this one-ounce gold City Views coin from The Royal Mint is a tribute to Rome, the eternal city. This coin features a view from Janiculum Hill, as sketched by the French artist, Jacques Alphonse Testard in the nineteenth century when wealthy British visitors flocked to Rome as part of their Grand Tour. They brought back antiquities and a taste for classical style, continuing a rich tradition of cultural exchange between Italy and the UK. Testard’s work, reproduced in minute detail on this £100 coin, captures the main dome of St Peter’s Basilica and St Peter’s Square as well as the bend of the Tiber as it flows through the city. It’s an intricate design, carefully adapted by The Royal Mint’s design team. Though released after her passing, this City Views coin features a portrait of Her Majesty the Queen to the obverse. Jody Clark’s effigy was the fifth and final definitive portrait used on Elizabeth II’s coinage and will be replaced with Martin Jenning’s left-facing profile of King Charles III for future coins in this series. This coin is composed of 31.21 grams of 24-carat gold. It has a diameter of 38.61 millimetres, a milled edge and a proof finish. Intended for collectors, proof coins are struck multiple times with hand-prepared dies for a superior level of detail and shine. You’ll receive your Rome City Views coin in its original presentation packaging with a numbered certificate of authenticity enclosed.
