The great work of numismatic art from Niue Island reminds us about superb Renaissance heritage of Italian cities. This is because in those times – in fourteenth, fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, thanks to the generous Italian families, people built churches and created paintings, which still exist and still amaze with its splendour. Through the following ages, sacred art was blooming, which is perfectly depicted on the coin.
