Own one of the most famous paintings in the world…on a coin!


‘The Scream’ is the popular name given to the composition created by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch in 1983.

‘The Scream’

Originally, the painting was called ‘The Scream of Nature’, symbolising the anxieties and uncertainties of the modern man. It quickly became one of the most significant paintings in the world – gaining momentum due to multiple idiosyncrasies in the flowing curves of the artwork.

In an entry in Munch’s diary, the artist noted: ‘I felt the scream of nature move through me’, raising debates as to whether the picture shows someone emitting a scream or someone with their hands covering their ears to cover up a scream.  

Munch created four versions in both paint and pastels and one of the pastel versions reached the fourth highest price paid for a painting at public auction ever - $119,922,500!

And now, you can own your very own version of the painting at a fraction of the cost – and plated in 999/1000 silver!

Just £14.99!
