The “Behind the Mask” coin is a unique work of numismatic art symbolizing the phenomenon of hypocrisy that permeates our modern society. It vividly illustrates the disconnect between appearance and the true essence of individuals.
On the obverse side of the coin, there is an image of an old woman’s face, serving as a metaphor for someone concealing their true nature and intentions. However, it is obscured by a mask of a young and beautiful girl, symbolizing the external facade that people wear to hide their flaws and true intentions.
The main idea embedded in this coin is that our contemporary era is rife with hypocrisy, where people adeptly manipulate and conceal their true selves. They say what they deem necessary, rather than expressing their genuine thoughts. They deceive others to fulfill their own goals and hide their true intentions behind a mask of kindness and sincerity.
