A beautiful collectable coin issued by Martello Alley. This is the sixth coin issued, and it commemorates our sixth year in operation (2020). The obverse of the coin indicates the year of issue, and features our crest and our motto ""La créativité demande du courage" (Creativity takes courage), a quote by Henri Matisse. The reverse details the value "vingt dollars" (twenty dollars), our Website address and a portrayal of the painting “Martello Alley Snowman” by artist and gallery owner David Dossett. This little snowman is all alone in the courtyard at Martello Alley. He has a paint can for a hat and paintbrushes for hands. Why don’t you come down and visit and keep him company?
