Over the many years that the Tiffany Art series has been in existence, numerous advances in minting technology have allowed the series to elevate to new levels every year. For 2021, CIT is proud to introduce what we believe is a Quantum leap forward for this award-winning series! We are pleased to present, Metropolis. The first in the Tiffany Art series to feature famous urban landscapes. The first city to be honored is the City of Love – Paris.
The reverse shows the French capital from a bird’s-eye view highlighting selected buildings like the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and the Arc de Triomphe. You can easily lose yourself in the highly detailed huge road network thanks to the enhanced smartminting® technology. The obverse pictures one of most ornate and extravagant bridges of Paris, the Pont Alexandre III. With its prominent sculptures and elements this bridge is classified as a French “monument historique”. The Tiffany Art glass that the series is known for is done in a completely new way as you see it wind through the city as a representation of the River Seine. The way the turquoise colored glass appears to literally divide the coin in half is a ground breaking achievement of numismatic technology!
