Posters are a part of our world culture. This is especially true for the past 200 years. In the beginning, posters were designed to attract people’s focus and attention, however; in modern culture, this craft has turned itself into a respected and highly valued art form. It was our goal to gather the most beautiful posters, which have been created throughout history and commemorate them on a series of precious metal coins.
The miniature variant has the perfect size, since the original sizes are just taking up too much space. This way you can collect all of these special artworks!
The reverse captures an original vintage poster of the famous Santa Fe railway. The image depicted on the coin is not altered, so it is a replica of the original poster. The Santa Fe Chief is the #1 of 24 posters to be released in 2015.
About the Artwork: The poster was created in 1931 by Hernando Gonzalo Villa, as a travel advertisement, for the Santa Fe Railway. The Railway was one of the largest in the United States of America and a pioneer in intermodal freight service.
About the Artist: Hernando Gonzalo Villa (born 1881, died 1952) was a prominent commercial artist and muralist whose work primarily depicted Native Americans, Mexican vaqueros, California missions, Spanish colonialists, and coastal views.
The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the year of issue and the denomination of the coin.
The Vintage Mini Posters - The Santa Fe Chief silver coin comes in an awesome blister case, which is doing a remarkable job in staging this very special poster coin. The front flap of the booklet has a "cut out" section, displaying the coin even if the booklet is closed. When closed, the image printed onto the blister features an extension of the original poster. Every issue of the series has its own number: The Santa Fe Chief is #1 of the series. The number is also printed onto the blister, making this special series a true collectors item. The Certificate of Authenticity is printed on the blister case!
