In 1966 Salvador Dali minted his own version of gold coins, the Dali d’or. The inspiration came from French king, Louis XIV’s creation of his "Louis d’or" coins. Designed in four different sizes and values, Dali was known to use them as an alternate form of payment to his close friends. Every coin is signed, dated, and incised with edition number. One year later, Dali partnered with the jeweler Piaget to incorporate his coins into exclusive jewelry line, which included earrings, pendants, brooches, cufflinks and watches.
