Behold the Lucifer Morning Star coin — the second in the Dual Essence series, unveiling the profound metamorphosis of the once flawless Cherub. Once the most esteemed angel in heaven, this rebel was cast down by the hand of God due to the birth of vanity and violence within him. The brightest being plunged into exile and transformed into a devil. The coin captivatingly balances both the purity and wickedness of the fallen one. Split in two and holding a gilded morning star, this biblical figure serves as a reminder of the symbolic meanings associated with his name. Lucifer, 'light-bearer' in Latin and 'dawn-bringer' in Greek, represents the token of duality and lost glory.
