This IMPRESSIVE coin has a main reverse face of coin is beautifully colored to do full justice dedicated to the Scream, one of the world’s most famous paintings.
The Scream is a composition created by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch in 1893. The agonized face in the painting has become one of the most iconic images of art, seen as symbolizing the anxiety of the human condition.
Munch recalled that he had been out for a walk at sunset when suddenly the setting sun's light turned the clouds "a blood red". He sensed an "infinite scream passing through nature". Scholars have located the spot to a fjord overlooking Oslo and have suggested other explanations for the unnaturally orange sky, ranging from the effects of a volcanic eruption to a psychological reaction by Munch to his sister's commitment at a nearby lunatic asylum.

The obverse is quite clever as it’s struck to show the back of the puzzle pieces and the artwork, with the issue details placed across a pattern of them. In a nice touch, the missing patch from the colored face is reproduced here and is also colored. The name of the artwork and the national shield of Cameroon are also present here, helping to keep the reverse face free of excessive distraction.
