The Red Vineyard 1888 by Vincent Van Gogh

2.5 oz 999 Fine Silver Coin – Republique du Tchad 2024 – 10000 Francs CFA

“The Red Vineyard at Arles” is a renown, post-impression art created by artist Vincent van Gogh in 1888. Similarly to many of his masterpieces, this painting features a rich and vibrant use of colour palette with swirling brushwork, contributing to the warmth and intensity of the scene.

The scene depicts the Red Vineyard in Arles, a town in the south of France where van Gogh lived for a period while escaping from the industrialised cities of the North. The painting depicts a scene of laborers harvesting grapes in the vineyard, and it captures the essence of rural life and labor in the vineyards of the region. This theme of labor in the vineyard is a recurring motif in van Gogh’s work, reflecting his interest in depicting the life of the common people.

This painting is significant in art history as it is believed to be the only artwork that van Gogh sold during his lifetime. It was purchased by Anna Boch, a friend of van Gogh, for 400 francs in 1890.

Overall, this artwork is a representation of van Gogh’s deep connection to the land, his reverence for nature, and his celebration of the beauty found in the ordinary and the labor of everyday life. It is a testament of van Gogh’s artistic vision and showcase his desire to capture the essence of the world around him.

On a canvas of 165 x 125mm, a new minting technique called “Tri-Metal ” was applied to give this piece its remarkable weight while keeping its proportions true to the actual painting. This is made possible by combining 750g of Zinc as a center layer and 120g of copper as a base with a top layer of 2.5 oz of 999 fine Silver, resulting in a high relief. This is a limited edition of 399 pieces only. Each piece is packaged and delivered with a Certificate verifying its edition number and authenticity.
