Background:

The Sistine Chapel of the Vatican City was built by Pope Sixtus IV and so it owes him its name. The chapel was particularly famous for its decorations with frescoes, which show scenes from the Genesis on a total of 520 m² with 115 larger-than-life characters.

The ceiling painting was created by Michelangelo Buonarroti in the period from 1508 to 1512. The central ridge consists of nine horizontal image fields of different sizes depicting scenes from the Old Testament: Creation, Adam and Eve, and Noah.  Surrounded are the scenes of motifs from the Bible and ancient mythology. True replication to original the ceiling fresco is featured on this remarkable 270 x 390 mm massive coin.
