Art in a Coin

In our country, Picchiani & Barlacchi, symbolizing a century of culture and art, has been producing artistic and commemorative medals, customized coins, crests, trophies, and many other meticulously crafted objects that recall indelible events at local, national, and international levels for almost 120 years.

Picchiani and Barlacchi of Florence were entrusted with a prestigious international event: the contract for minting the official coin of Expo 2015 for heads of state and major Italian and international institutions visiting Milan during the exhibition.

The collaboration began in the ’80s with Laura Cretara, a renowned artist, and engraver who played a special role as a judge in three editions of the Biennale della Medaglia d’Arte (Biennial of Medal Art). Cretara continued to be at the center of this art, contributing to the design of the Expo Milano 2015 coin, featuring her signature engraving of the Tree of Life.

The design portrays a plant drawing nourishment from planet Earth, with five branches, each with five different but equally sized leaves representing a continent: Maple for North and South America, Photos for Asia, Agrimony for Africa, Eucalyptus for Australia, and Oak for Europe.

From that moment, mutual respect and trust solidified into a deep relationship of which the company is very proud.

This assignment had a symbolic value: it gave space to Italian excellences, of whichthe Florentine company has been a part for more than a century.
