This is the third and last silver coin to honor the 700th anniversary of the death of the great 14th century author Dante Alighieri.

All three coins focus on La Divina Commedia (“The Divine Comedy”), Dante’s most well-known work, which was most likely written between 1308 and 1321. The current issue focuses on PARADISE, while the previous two coins in the series have featured INFERNO and PURGATORY.

The reverse shows a depiction of Paradise with the sky, the sun, the stars, and a detail from Giotto's fresco "Angels of Paradise" on a bed of clouds. This fresco is on display in the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua. The inscription says L'AMOR CHE MOVE IL SOLE E L'ALTRE STELLE (love that moves the sun and the other stars), which is the closing verse of the cantica of Paradise.

The obverse features a profile of Dante Alighieri inspired by a painting by Sandro Botticelli.
