The Museo del Prado opened to the public on November 19, 1819 as the Royal Museum of Painting and Sculpture. In 2019 the 200th anniversary of this spectacular and well-known museum is celebrated. To commemorate this event, the FNMT issues a collection of coins called "Bicentennial of the Prado Museum". The issue consists of three circular pieces and three square pieces, in which well-known works of the Prado Museum are reproduced.
This collection consists of the three silver coins of the emission. The following works are reproduced on the obverse:
On the first coin is reproduced, in colors, the work entitled "La maja desnuda", made by Francisco de Goya y Lucientes before 1800, which is preserved in the Museo Nacional del Prado.
On the second coin is reproduced, in colors, the work entitled "Prince Baltasar Carlos, on horseback", made by Diego Rodríguez de Silva and Velázquez between 1634 and 1635, which is preserved in the Museo Nacional del Prado.
On the third coin is reproduced, in colors, a fragment of the work entitled "The Annunciation", made by Domenicos Theotocopoulos, El Greco, between 1597 and 1600, which is preserved in the Museo Nacional del Prado.
On the reverse (common to the three pieces), the logo of the Bicentennial of the Prado Museum is reproduced together with an image of the seated statue of Velázquez, made by Aniceto Marinas in 1899 and located in front of the Velázquez Gate of the National Museum of the Prado, of Madrid.
