Product Information

 

Robert Schumann, one of the most famous and important Romantic composers of the 19th century, was born 200 years ago in Saxony on 8 June 1810.  As a young man he studied the piano, but a hand injury ended his hopes of becoming a virtuoso.  Instead, Schumann dedicated himself to composition. During different phases of his career, he focussed on keyboard music, song, chamber music, choral music, opera and symphony.  Schumann’s genius, however, was cut short by his death in an asylum in 1856. 

Proof Quality 99.9% Pure Silver

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.

Schumann Reverse Design

The coin’s reverse depicts a representation of Robert Schumann, a treble clef and music notes.  As well as The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the design includes the inscription ‘Robert Schumann 1810 – 1856’.
