The British Department of Culture imposed a temporary export ban on the 15th century coin, which is depicted with the relief technique of Venus, the goddess of love, in Roman mythology, valued at 17 million pounds, so that it cannot be sold abroad.

“The export of an exceptionally rare Italian coin made in Mantua over 500 years ago has been postponed,” a statement on behalf of Culture Minister Caroline Dinenage said.

The ministry asked British institutions that the export ban would last for 4 months and that they wanted to buy the piece during this period and ensure that the historical artifact remains in the country. Experts said the dark brown coin is worth 17 million pounds.

The relief details of the coin include Venus, her lover Mars, her husband Vulcan, and her son Cupid. It was specified that the medallion, very well preserved over the centuries, was made of bronze and covered with silver and mercury gilding.

Culture Minister Caroline Dinenage said: “This piece is an astonishing combination of myth and mystery. “I hope a buyer can be found in the UK so that researchers can uncover their secrets and the public can see this great design on display.”

Stuart Lochead, Member of the Export of Artefacts and Objects of Cultural Interest (RCEWA) Review Panel, said: “This magnificent gilded and silver bronze medallion of extraordinary size and of the highest possible quality. was produced in northern Italy from the 15th to the early 16th centuries, it represents the best of the highly sophisticated and intellectual humanist artists and patrons active in the city.

“Nonetheless, many of his secrets are still waiting to be revealed,” Lochead said. While showing clear links to (the medallion) Mantegna and Donatello, it is hoped that further work will reveal who designed and produced it, and for whom, and thus contributes to the progressive knowledge of the period.
