You Must Watch Alessandro Novelli’s Beautiful Coins

beautifulAnimated-filmmaker Alessandro Novelli has created a whimsical and elegant short video that celebrates the beauty and cultural heritage of Europe’s pre-euro coinage.

Starting with the German 5 Mark coin, Novelli weaves a story that travels through time and across the continent. Underneath the striking visual presentation is a jaunty and playful musical score by Django Reinhardt.

If this video doesn’t make you want to collect these coins, you’re in the wrong hobby…
