Product Description

Madonna and Child

World Heritage Series


This gilded silver coin with a flat edge is dedicated to the “World Heritage”. This “Madonna and Child” by Sano di Pietro (1405-1481) retains its original frame carved in one with the panel. The modeling is proportionally rather deep for the scale of the painting. The alternating blue and gilt blocks of the dentil, that encircle the Virgin and Child like a halo of stars, are due to the intervention of the restorer/faker Icilio Federico Joni, who described this panel in his biography of 1936. An identical roundel framed the “Stigmatization of Saint Francis” by Sano di Pietro, owned by Giulio Grisaldi del Taia and then by F. Mason Perkins in the early twentieth century. The companion model has disappeared since then…

review for MADONNA AND CHILD

  1. 5 out of 5

    I purchased this coin following the purchase of another coin, Christ Pantokrator. The coin like that of Christ is stunning, a work of art. Everything about it oozes quality. A superb coin in a luxurious presentation case. I am very pleased with this purchase from a seller who stocks an interesting range of coins at amenable prices.
