Why purchase this flawless 2017 Murrine Millefiori Glass Art Silver Proof?
This silver proof is the third and final release in the Murrine Millefiori Glass Art series produced by the Mayer Mint in Germany. Minted for the Cook Islands, the series pays tribute to the hand crafted glass-making technique of Millefiori, an ancient Roman glass art technique. The beautiful proof is struck from 20g (0.643 Troy oz.) of .999 fine silver, with a mintage limited to only 999 one-of-a-kind hand crafted pieces.
Spectacular Artistry of Hand Crafted Glass
A green Millefiori Murrine glass heart is featured at the center of the reverse, framed by the inscriptions "MURRINE", "MILLEFIORI", "GLASS ART" and "2017". The design is encircled by a magnificent example of Millefiori Murrine glass art, featuring a field of flowers of varied shapes and colors on a bright green background.
The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II surrounded by "ELIZABETH II", "COOK ISLANDS", "5 DOLLARS", and a border engraved with stylized flowers.
