Product Description

Great Composers 1oz Silver Proof Coin Robert Schumann 1810 - 1856


Robert Schumann, one of the most famous and important Romantic composers of the 19th century, was born 200 years ago in Saxony on 8 June 1810.  As a young man he studied the piano, but a hand injury ended his hopes of becoming a virtuoso.  Instead, Schumann dedicated himself to composition. During different phases of his career, he focussed on keyboard music, song, chamber music, choral music, opera and symphony.  Schumann’s genius, however, was cut short by his death in an asylum in 1856.

Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu, the coin bears the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2010 year-date on its obverse.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of these coins
