THE GREAT WAVE – HOKUSAI 2020 10€ silver proof coin

Monnaie de Paris pays tribute to the major masterpieces of French museums or having been painted in France.

The Great Wave, is a woodblock print by the Japanese ukiyo-e artist Hokusai. It was published sometime between 1829 and 1833 in the late Edo period as the first print in Hokusai’s series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji.

Reverse

The reverse is common to the series, it shows a mix of some French museums views.

Obverse

The obverse of the coin includes the entire representation of The Wave. It is in the close-up compared to the volcano which seems very little over the horizon. Fishermen run the risk to fall in the rough sea. This art work shows the Human fragility in front of the destructive power of nature.

Packaging

Your coin comes in a standard Monnaie de Paris collector’s box with a themed cardboard shipper.  A certificate of authenticity is enclosed.
