Vincent van Gogh took an unusual approach, for the time, to painting Almond Blossom. He used a technique inspired by Japanese prints which often “zoomed in” on small details of a tree instead of painting the whole. Inspired by that example, Van Gogh painted the branches of his tree as though from very low and close, as if the viewer were lying on their back in the grass and looking up. It was one of the signature touches that made the painting among his best-loved works.
Capturing the beauty of that canvas in numismatic form is no easy task, but the 2022 Proof Niue Silver Almond Blossom Coin offers a truly worthy tribute. With a brilliant proof-quality finish, extraordinarily detailed digital printing, a square design, and gilded decorations, it’s sure to be a prized collector’s item. JM Bullion ships each coin fully insured in a themed box, each with a Certificate of Authenticity.
The coin’s obverse side carries an official effigy of Elizabeth II that confirms it as legal tender despite its unusual shape. Around the rim are the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “1 Dollar,” “Niue Island,” and “2022.”
The coin’s reverse side is dominated by a beautiful recreation in miniature of the painting Almond Blossom, made using advanced digital printing technology. It’s framed inside a gilded border with elaborate stylized details.
