Coin Story

Marvelous issue in famous Windows of Heaven's series featuring full-color stained glass inserts from famous churches and cathedrals around the world. This release features Saint Isaac's Cathedral, the largest Russian Orthodox cathedral in Saint Petersburg, Russia. It is dedicated to Saint Isaac of Dalmatia, a patron saint of Peter the Great, who had been born on the feast day of that saint. Held up against the light, the window will become translucent and show the intricate design in full splendor.

Struck in to the reverse of this coin is an image showing the inside of the Saint Isaac's Cathedral in St. Petersburg, 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.
