Depicts a detail of Gustav Klimt's The Three Ages of Woman; at the base, the name of the painter; below, on the left, the coin's value, on the right, the mintmark "R"; around, “Europe of Arts”.

The Three Ages of Woman is a painting that was completed in Austria in 1905 by Gustav Klimt, symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement.

The work features women in varying stages of age, symbolizing the cycle of life. The three are central on the canvas and are the focal point of the work. The background has a lack of depth, making it look very two dimensional. The colors are neutral and create a restful effect. Klimt's common use of colorful motifs is also evident in this work.
