This marvelous coin is the release in a spectacular “Apocalypse” series.
The Apocalypse of Saint John (Book of Revelation) tells us that the Archangel Michael, after overcoming the rebel angels, slays the dragon. And here the dragon has some allusions – it appears as an allegorical embodiment of evil. On the given coin, we can see how gracefully Saint Michael raises his sword in order to overcome a horrible beast. The coin greatly depicts how with a show of elegance and ease, a hero is fighting against a mortal enemy.
