St. Michael and the Dragon – Explore a Great Story from the Book of Revelation – "Saint Michael Slays the Dragon"!
This coin continues the spectacular "Apocalypse" series, coming after "The Four Horsemen of The Apocalypse" coin. The series has such a name in honor of the final book of the New Testament, and at the same time the final book of the Christian Bible – "Apocalypse ". You can often hear that this book is called in some other ways including The Book of Revelation, the Book of Revelations, Revelation to John, Apocalypse of John, The Revelation (or just Revelation), the Revelation from Jesus Christ. "Apokalypsis" is translated from Koine or Biblical Greek as "revelation" or "unveiling".
The coin is dedicated to one of the stories from the Book of Revelation – "Saint Michael Fighting the Dragon". Michael was regarded as the archangel that means he was the chief angel. Catholic sanctuaries to Michael appeared in the 4th century, when he was first seen as a healing angel, and then over time as a protector and the leader of the army of God against the forces of evil.
On the coin, it is greatly depicted how with a show of elegance and ease, a hero is fighting against a mortal enemy. Saint Michael gracefully raises his sword in order to overcome a horrible beast. And here the dragon has some allusions – it appears as an allegorical embodiment of evil.
The coin features high relief and the selective gilding technique. The mintage is limited to 500 pieces for global distribution.
