Along with their Micropuzzle Treasure series, Micromosaic Passion was an interesting concept whereby finely struck lines, in conjunction with high-quality colour, gave the impression the image was built up of smaller pieces. The puzzle coins were very well done, but we particularly liked the mosaic ones for the flowing pieces, expertly realised to form a greater whole.
Like the puzzle range, the mosaic series has effectively ended, but again, like the puzzle coins, Powercoin has issued a big special commemorative edition, to round it out. The five earlier issues each depicted a classic piece of art featuring a woman, and for this piece, they’ve cleverly taken the respective ladies and combined them into a single, multi-headed portrait.
All the old signature features return, just in 80 mm diameter, five-ounce form. A novel idea, it looks well done, and if you missed out on one or more of the originals, this is a neat way to catch-up. Probably a lot cheaper as well, given prices on the five prior issues have risen quite healthily. Boxed with a COA, and available to order now.
