PLEASE NOTE: This item displays some minor cosmetic blemishes that occurred during production and/or shipping from the mint.

1) There are three small marks (approx 3mm dia) on the exterior wood storage box where the stained finish has chipped away.

2) There is a clear sheet enclosure that is a map and description of the specific artworks captured on the main face of the coin. It has a small hairline crack and some other small abrasions. Probably from the weight of the coin bearing on it during shipping.

3) The obverse face of the coin has some small marks where the finish has been under compression from the Lexan coin capsule.

These are very minor imperfections and our discount should more than compensate and the primary coin surface, display capsule and coin stand are all in 100% perfect condition.

This is coin set #207 out of 750.

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.
