Introduction

Complete set Centenray of the birth of Salvador Dali

The year 2004 commemorates the centenary of the birth of the great painter Salvador Dalí who was born in Figueras in 1904. His very personal style transcended artistic movements such as cubism and surrealism, to become what he himself defined as the paranoid-critical approach.

With the issue of this set of collector coins in gold and silver the Fábrica Nacional de Moneda y Timbre-Real Casa de la Moneda pays him a special tribute.
