This issue is part of the popular series of 3 ounce Swarovski crystal insert silver coins with beautiful pad color printing of classical masterpieces of art.

This is the sixth issue to feature a pure gold insert featuring the actual artwork itself, after the Mona Lisa (2009), Vitruvian Man (2010), Tutankhamun (2011), Bust of Nefertite (2012) and Virgin of Vladimir (2013). The gold insert is surrounded by 26 inset Swarovski crystals, and is individually numbered on the back.

Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni (1475–1564) was an Italian sculptor, painter, architect, poet, and engineer of the High Renaissance who exerted an unparalleled influence on the development of Western art. Despite making few forays beyond the arts, his versatility in the disciplines he took up was of such a high order that he is often considered a contender for the title of the archetypal Renaissance man, along with his fellow Italian Leonardo da Vinci.

The Pietà (1498–1499) is a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture housed in St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican City. It is the first of a number of works of the same theme by the artist. The statue was commissioned for the French cardinal Jean de Billheres, who was a representative in Rome. The sculpture, in Carrara marble, was made for the cardinal's funeral monument, but was moved to its current location, the first chapel on the right as one enters the basilica, in the 18th century. It is the only piece Michelangelo ever signed. This famous work of art depicts the body of Jesus on the lap of his mother Mary after the Crucifixion.
