 Art of famous Mexican Artist

“ EL BIEN Y EL MALO”

 

This amazing silver coin is first in these series. Mexican Surrealist painter has his amazing work showcased on a new silver coin series. Art has always been popular on coins and never more than now as new technologies aimed at modern numismatics have broadened just what is possible reproducing them.

The work of Octavio Ocampo utilising story-telling elements to form an image viewable in multiple ways, Ocampo cleverly merges small distinct images to form something else when looked at as a single piece. Case in point is the painting shown on this first coin. Either an angelic figure escorting two children over a bridge, or a satanic face, both are correct interpretations of the artwork. Both work with each other and we’re sure a psychologist would have much to say over which image you saw first…

To spice things up a little more, the coin has a luminescent coating that depicts a menacing visage when the lights go dim. Again, it’s a clever idea, even if the artwork is more than capable of speaking for itself and you can see it if you run your mouse pointer over the coin image below. Thankfully, the artwork is devoid of unnecessary inscriptions. Of particular note is the coin rim. Made to look like a carved wooden frame, it’s a superb way to enhance the artwork.

The obverse is a standard Niue affair; just the Ian Rank Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II along with the usual inscriptions (issuer, date, denomination). Struck in an ounce of fine silver, the coin is a good size and will hopefully be more affordable as a result. Just 500 of these are being struck and it’s to be the first in a new series depicting the work of Ocampo.
