**MINTAGE SOLD OUT**
The Archangel Gabriel features on the first release in the divine new Archangel Coin Collection struck in 1oz pure silver.
The prefix ‘arch’ means ruling or chief in Greek, so an archangel is assumed to be at the top of the angelic hierarchy in terms of power. Many scriptures tell of the archangels’ great abilities as healers and guides, intervening with assistance in many of life’s challenging situations. While the exact number of archangels is debated from faith to faith, many traditions and faiths reference seven archangels.
Gabriel’s name means 'God is my strength'. Gabriel is believed to be a messenger of God and is often regarded as the strongest and most powerful angel in the angelic realm. Undoubtedly one of the most well-known, Gabriel is remembered as the angel who reached out to May before the birth of Jesus Christ.
The reverse of this heavenly coin shows a beautiful image of the Archangel Gabriel from a 1920 stained-glass window by Mary Hutchinson in Hull Minster, UK. This is framed by a beautifully engraved border. The obverse has border engraving to match and features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. It is legal tender in Niue.
The elegant themed box reflects Gabriel’s energy colour of white – representing harmony and holiness. An acrylic coin case allows for easy display and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity confirms the mintage of only 2,000 coins. You won’t want to miss out on this first coin in the collection.
