This beautiful coin is the highlight of the window coin series and is dedicated to the world famous Alabaster Window of St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City. The Cathedra Petri, or “Throne of St. Peter”, is the central work of art in the apse of the Basilica. The 100 mm coin is struck from 10 oz silver 999 in proof-like quality and high relief and features a real color window. It comes housed in a luxury box with illumination.

The obverse window is surrounded by the following inscriptions: the Queen’s name, the face value of the coin, its issuing country and year.

The high relief reverse represents some of the Basilica’s decirations that frame the Alabaster Window. At the center of this window, there is a white dove which symbolizes the Holy Spirit, hence the title “Dove of the Holy Spirit”. The dove, from wing tip to wing tip, is six feet wide, which puts into perspective the colossal size of the whole sculpture. The light rays shift from brighter to darker as they move away from the dove, thus illustrating God the Holy Spirit as the source of light. The brightness alternates between light and dark with each division between the amber light rays around the dove, thereby accentuating each individual beam of light without bringing too much attention to any single one.
