N-196799, San Marino, 2020 2 Euro, Raffaello Sanzio, Blister BU

Obverse: The design reproduces the profile of the Virgin Mary, which is part of the Madonna di Casa
Santi fresco, the first masterpiece by a very young Raphael painted in the family home in Urbino, which now houses the
prestigious Accademia Raffaello. The fresco depicts the Virgin Mary holding the infant Jesus on her lap and is imbued with
the delicacy of the intimacy between mother and son, a recurring theme in Raphael’s artistic works. In the top right of the
coin, there is the name of the issuing country ‘SAN MARINO’ and the years ‘1520’ and ‘2020’. At the bottom is the
inscription ‘RAFFAELLO’, on the right the initials of the designer Annalisa Masini ‘AM’, and on the left the letter ‘R’,
indicating the Mint of Rome.
The coin’s outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European flag

Reverse: A map, next to the face value, shows the European continent without borders.

Weight : 8.5 grams (Bimetalic)
