BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS
2006 $1 LEGAL TENDER COPPER-NICKEL COIN UNCIRCULATED
Leonardo Da Vinci was born on April 14, 1452 in the small Tuscan town of Vinci, near Florence and during his life became one of the great masters of the High Renaissance, who was also celebrated as a painter, sculptor, architect, engineer, and scientist. His innovations in the field of painting influenced the course of Italian art for more than a century after his death, and his scientific studies – particularly in the fields of anatomy, optics, and hydraulics – anticipated many of the developments of modern science.
The identity of the sitter for the Mona Lisa has been a point of debate for Art Historians over the centuries.
