Creation of Adam is third issue of a popular series X-ray coins. The famous ceiling painting by the Italian artist Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel in Rome is the inspiration for the image of almost touching hands. God’s breath of life flies from his fingertip to a human’s. Adam, the first man, was symbolically created with this hand motion. A section of Michelangelo’s The last judgement is shown next to God’s hands and his divine creation. The reverse of the silver dollar features an X-ray representation of the obverse design, depicting Adam’s creation. Creation of Adam coin is 1 oz in weight, features an extra high relief design, and a proof finish. Only 1,500 of these coins will ever be produced. Your coin will be presented in a black windowed display case with a matching certificate of authenticity.

On the heels of our recent X-ray adventure in Egypt, we visit Rome, one of the centres of art in Italy for the 3rd edition of the series. The depicted image of almost touching hands derives from a renowned ceiling fresco by the Italian painter Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel in Rome. The divine breath of life leaps from God’s finger to the one of a human. This famous gesture represents the Creation of Adam – the first man. Next to the hands of God and his divine creation, a part of another monumental work by Michelangelo – The Last Judgement – is revealed.
