Coin Story


The Zagreb Cathedral is a Roman Catholic institution and the tallest building in Croatia. It is dedicated to the Assumption of Mary and to kings Saint Stephen and Saint Ladislaus. The cathedral is typically Gothic, as is its sacristy, which is of great architectural value. Its spires can be seen from many locations in the city. Construction on the cathedral started in 1093. The cathedral was severely damaged in the 1880 Zagreb earthquake. The main nave collapsed and the tower was damaged beyond repair. The restoration of the cathedral in the Neo-Gothic brought the cathedral to its present form. As part of that restoration, two spires 108 m high were raised on the western side.

Reverse Design

Struck in to the reverse of this coin is an image showing parts of the inside of the Zagreb Cathedral in Croatia, with a plan of the layout of the church on the side. In the middle is a section, taken from within the cathedral, showing a beautifully designed stained-glass window. The name of the series, the city featured and the year of issue are all inscribed on this side.

Obverse Design

The obverse features the stained-glass showing the image (on the window) in reverse. On this side, together with the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, you will find the country of issue and the face value.

Packaging

The Windows of Heaven - Zagreb Cathedral in Croatia, is struck from sterling silver and encapsulated, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. It comes with a presentation case, which is doing a great job in staging this special coin.
