Coin Story

On the 15th of August, all Orthodox Christians celebrate the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin. The holiday is called the “Most Holy Mary”. Lent precedes the holiday. During the Lend, Orthodox Christians, do not eat meat and vegetable oil. Due to the abundance of fruits and vegetable food during this time of year – it is really easier to follow the strict instructions of the Lent.

This holiday includes many aspects of the agrarian nature. On the Holiday of the "Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary" women consecrate “boiled rice with raisins and honey " in the church, fruits, honeycomb and honey, grapes, and give to the poor "for the memory of the passed away ones", and visit the graves of their relatives.

In many villages of the Republic of Moldova the Christian holiday of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin is celebrated. The Churches named in her honour, celebrate the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Temple of the village. All villagers prepare together for this special holiday; women do spring-cleaning and cook the most delicious meals. After lunch, everyone is going to the “Hora of the village" – thus is means singing and dancing of the village.

He is also depicted with a halo and a triangle, symbolising the holy trinity. Only the faces are coloured, while the rest of the image is gold-plated. You will also find numerous stones on the image. The coin is very detailed and features many fine engravings. A true masterpiece!
