2016 Tiffany Art Jain Art Silver Coin
This time our silver-journey through the history of art leads us to the Indian state Rajasthan. The Jaina architecture provides an abundance of magnificent, elaborate structures in finest stonemasonry labour. The 12th Tiffany Art edition shows a grave of honour in the form of a dome shaped pavilion, called Chhatri, on the Gadi Sagar Lake.
The reverse side provides us a peek into the atrium of the temple Adeshwar Nath at Jaisalmer. It is Parshvanata sanctified who was one of the founders of Jainism. Both sides have blue glass windows and a perfect blend of unbelievable relief height and finest details. It is a pity that only a few pieces are available.
