Coin Story

This convex shaped silver proof coin is dedicated to the "Orthodox Shrines". On January 2nd 1833, the great ascetic, Christian mystic, wonder-worker and spiritual father, Seraphim, was found dead in his small cabin in the wood close to Sarov Monastery, in Russia. He was found kneeling in prayer before an icon of the Mother of God, which had served him as a great inspiration throughout his life: The Umilenie, or Tenderness icon of the Mother of God. The icon is very rare within Orthodoxy, because the Mother of God is shown without the infant Christ. The reason for this special depiction is, that Mary is portrayed at the moment of annunciation (Luke 1:24-38). With arms prayerfully folded in submission of the Lord, eyes downcast in humility, she is at the point of uttering her humanity-saving reply to Archangel Gabriel: "Let it be to me according to thy word".

Reverse Design

The reverse depicts the God's Bride. The character is designed to match the original icon offsets itself against the reflecting silver proof background. The face and hands are coloured, while the rest of the icon is depicted in white or yellow. The inscription around the halo says: "Rejoice, Virgin Bride"

Obverse Design

The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Packaging

The coin is packaged inside an elegant and rich wooden box. It is in a beautiful case, which is doing a great job in staging the remarkable coin. The Certificate of Authenticity is displayed on the inner packaging.
