Interesting Facts –  Giorgio Vasari (30 July 1511 – 27 June 1574) was an Italian painter, writer, historian and architect, who is today famous for his biographies of Italian artists, considered the ideological foundation of art-historical writing. As the first Italian art historian, he initiated the genre of an encyclopedia of artistic biographies that continues today. Vasari coined the term “Renaissance” (rinascita) in print, though an awareness of the ongoing “rebirth” in the arts had been in the air from the time of Alberti. 
The inner part of the coin shows a detail from the painting Judith and Holofernes by Giorgio Vasari. At the bottom are the dates 1511 – 2011, with the inscription G. Vasari and the mint mark on the left and the inscriptions San Marino and C.M. (the mint maker Claudia Momoni’s initials) on the right. The twelve stars of the European Union surround the design on the outer ring of the coin. Issue Date 4th of June 2011
