There is no famous person more controversial or interesting than Julius Caesar. If his own actions in his life had not already made him famous around the world during his own life, Shakespeare’s representation of him in his plays would have been enough to cement Caesar’s fame for good. Julius Caesar still stands for a sense of reckless accomplishment and personal bravery even today, and nearly everyone alive has heard of this famous Roman. The likeness for this piece is modeled after the famous bust of Julius Caesar that was created by Andrea di Pietro di Marco Ferrucci from 1512-1514. The delicacy of the carving and design in the marble bust is astonishing, and this piece is held up as one of the best examples of Caesar’s image created long after he was alive. The renderings of famous Romans that were done long after they had passed away are hindered by intrusions of lore, legend, and the standards of beauty that were popular at the time that the artist was creating works of art. While this might not have been how Caesar looked, the drama and impressive nature of this rendering certainly communicate the power that would have surrounded Caesar like a cloak.
This finely-detailed bust design is made to remind collectors of a sculpture but it offers superior attention to detail and quality of the shaped high-relief minting process. This piece is crafted with 2 oz of 999 pure Silver and die-cut with fine precision to deliver its engraved details in a super-high relief, before being topped off with antiqued silver finishing. This is a limited edition of 396 pieces only. +39 is the country code of Italy and 6 for Rome. Each piece is packaged and delivered with a Certificate verifying its edition number and authenticity.
