Europa Star 2016-2020 is a five-year program bringing together mints from across the euro area for the issuance of collector silver proof coins. The themes selected for the series are inspired from Europe’s history, each year highlighting a different era:

2016 Modern 20th Century
2017 The Age of Iron and Glass
2018 Baroque and Rococo
2019 Renaissance
2020 Gothic

The Italian Mint (IPZS) has issued this coin as part of the Europa Star program. For 2018, the coin features the art which is part of the series “Ages of Europe - The Baroque & Rococo Periods” and the Europa Star program - an ongoing annual numismatic initiative begun in 2004. The present series has linked the eurozone bank notes and their individual themes or representations of art throughout the ages.

The 2016 series was dedicated to the age of modern 20th-century art (€500) with the 2017 series highlighting the age of glass and steel (€200). The 2018 series is representative of Baroque & Rococo art (€100).

The Baroque period is one of the world’s most recognised artistic and cultural movements which flourished in Rome around the third decade of the 17th century. Representative of Baroque as its highest expression was the aim to essentially surpass the perfect, smooth figures from the Classical period with more daring, rich, and elaborate forms. Exuberance, theatricality, and dramatic tension with strong light-and-shade contrasts are distinguishing features of an age inclined to be represented and celebrated magnificently with some of the world’s most revered works of art and artists.

The reverse side includes a detail from the statue of Santa Veronica by Francesco Mochi blended with sculptural decorative elements by Bernini and Borromini, which are representative of classical Italian Baroque art.

The common obverse for the third Europa series is the work of artisans from the Monnaie de Paris and features a large, off-centre star in the background. In the case of Italy’s example, designer Maria Carmela Colaneri has styled an allegorical representation of Italy with details from the emblem of the Italian Republic.
