    PARADISO is the second release celebrating the 700th anniversary of Dante's The Divine Comedy (the first release was INFERNO). Side note: a 1 kg silver version of Inferno has been released as well, so guessing at some point there will be a 1kg version of Paradiso.

    It is well-known that the most accomplished part of “The Divine Comedy” and at the same time, the part that Dante himself was proudest of, is Paradiso. Following Inferno and Purgatory, Paradiso is the final point – the realm where only the good and pure and virtuous are sent. It is found near to the enclosure of God and the Holy Trinity, representing the culmination of a good Christian’s hard work and unwavering faith. Paradiso is an allegory telling of Dante’s journey through the last of the Divine Realms – Heaven. He was making his journey with Beatrice as his guide, who symbolizes theology.
