The Sistine Madonna is an oil painting by Raphael completed between 1513 and 1514 and stored in the Old Masters Picture Gallery in Dresden. During the 1800s proponents of classicism and romanticism discovered the painting and helped to make it one of the most admired, cited and studied works of figurative art. Today the "Sistine Madonna" is considered one of the icons of the Renaissance and renowned worldwide in the same way as Leonardo da Vinci's "Mona Lisa" and Botticelli's "Venice".
An interpretation of this work by artist Daniela Fusco has been chosen by the Philatelic and Numismatic Office to mark the celebration of the 500th anniversary of the creation of the masterpiece. On the reverse of the 100 euro coin, the first numismatic gold issue under the Pontificate of Pope Francis, two details of the painting are depicted: the Virgin holding the Christ child in her arms and the two small angels at her feet.8844 oz AGW Weight: 30g Purity. 917 Face Value: 100 Euro Grade: Proof Mintage: 999 Diameter: 35mm Mint: IPZS - Italy Design: Maria Carmela Colaneri.

Martin Weiss has been a leader in the numismatics hobby for over 40 years. He is perhaps best known as the individual who helped to make the coins of China among the most collected coins around the world. Weiss tells: In 1983, there was virtually no market for modern Chinese coins in the United States or anywhere else. The People's Republic of China had only issued small denomination coins for circulation before 1979. Weiss's public relations campaign got the news of the new Panda coin (and his company's name-PandaAmerica) in newspapers throughout the country, and orders poured in. When the first catalogue of "China Panda Gold and Silver Coins" was published in China, Martin Weiss was the only American dealerto be featured.
In addition to creating a worldwide market for China's Panda coins, Martin Weiss developed a series of Inventions and Discoveries coins with China, that was a PandaAmerica exclusive. Weiss also developed a series of gold and silver Lunar-Zodiac commemoratives for the country of Singapore and coins commemorating the 500. Anniversary of Columbus' landfall in the New World for the Bahamas, all of which were successfully distributed exclusively by his company, PandaAmerica. Weiss contracted to distribute coins for the Perth Mint (Australia), the British Royal Mint, Israel Coins and Medals Corporation, Banco de Mexico, Monnaie de Paris, and others including the Olympic Coin Program of the United States Treasury. Martin Weiss was the recipient of Professional Numismatic GuildZ39;s Sol Kaplan Award in 2002 for helping to cleanse our profession of thievery and for upholding the ethics that the PNG stands for.Weiss's imagination, get-it-done attitude, professional standing, and worldwide connections assure the success of his future ventures. In addition to his membership in PNG, Mr. Weiss is a Life Member of the American Numismatic Association, and he abides by the Codes of Ethics of both organizations.
