The replica Adam and Eve portrait depicted on the reverse side of 2021 Cameroon Silver Adam and Eve Coins was originally created by German Renaissance artist Albrecht Durer. In this 1504 engraving, Adam and Eve are depicted in a counterpoise position, meaning their weight falls on one foot. This gives the impression that they are in-between movements, and also lends a vivid life-like quality to their bodies. Today, it is considered by art historians as one of the greatest of all Adam and Eve portraits.
On the obverse of 2021 17.5 Gram Proof Adam and Eve Coins is the Cameroon coat of arms. This includes the countrys motto of Paix, Travail, Patrie, meaning Peace, Work, Fatherland. Along the top edge are the words Republique Du Cameroun. The coins year and denomination are listed beneath them.
The reverse side of the 2021 Cameroon Silver Adam and Eve Coin shows a beautiful replica version of Durers Adam and Eve engraving. The first man and woman are revealed standing beside each other in counterpose position, while a tree with a serpent wrapped around the branch stands between them. Various wild creatures are shown in the background. An inscription reading Albrecht Durer 1471-1528 is inscribed below the image.
