The Pobjoy Mint was founded in 1965 by Derek Pobjoy. It is a privately held mint that produces commemorative coins, bullion and medals. Additionally, the mint manufactures circulating currency for British overseas territories.
The Sistine Madonna is one of Raphael's most famous oil paintings. It was commissioned in 1512 by Pope Juluis II for the San Sisto church. Two cherubs appear at the bottom of the painting. This was a late inclusion by Raphael.
