Coin Story

Washington National Cathedral is a cathedral of the Episcopal Church located in Washington, D.C. The construction began on September 29, 1907 and ended 83 years later. There are many works of art including over two hundred stained glass windows, the most familiar of which may be the Space Window, honoring man's landing on the Moon, which includes a fragment of lunar rock at its center; the rock was presented at the dedication service on 21 July 1974, the fifth anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission.

Reverse Design

Struck in to the reverse of this coin is an image showing parts of the inside of the Washington Cathedral, 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 - Washington Cathedral Space Window, 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.
