The Lady And The Dragon
|Year of Issue:
|High relief, selective gilding
The image of the Lady and the Dragon comes from the twelfth chapter of the Book of Revelation. On the coin, we can see “an enormous dragon with seven heads” that symbolizes seven deadly sins. He embodies Satan and descends upon “a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head.” This astonishing coin decorated with selective gilding carries out deep religious and cultural symbolism!
