Coin Story


Sankt Nikolai kyrka (Church of St. Nicholas), most commonly known as Storkyrkan (The Great Church) is the oldest church in the old town in central Stockholm, Sweden. It is an important example of Swedish Brick Gothic. Storkyrkan was first mentioned in a written source dated 1279. It became a Lutheran Protestant church in 1527. Because of its convenient size and its proximity to the earlier royal castle and the present royal palace it has frequently been the site of major events in Swedish history. Crown Princess Victoria, oldest daughter of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, was married to Daniel Westling on 19 June 2010 at the Storkyrkan, the same date on which her parents were also married in Storkyrkan in 1976.

Reverse Design

Struck in to the reverse of this coin is an image showing parts of the outside of the Church of St. Nicholas in Stockholm, 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 - Church of St. Nicholas in Stockholm, 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.
