2018 Gold and Silver Archangel Michael Coins Have Landed at APMEX
The 2018 Gold and Silver Archangel Michael coins have made their way to APMEX. From the National Bank of Ukraine, these beautiful coins are known for their low mintage as well as their incredible and iconic design.
The reverse of this coin shows Archangel Michael with wings spread and sword drawn standing over a defeated dragon. Surrounding the image is Ukrainian text, taken from T. Shevchenko's “Haydmamaks,” which translates to “for us and souls of righteous men,” and “Archangel Michael's strength”. The obverse also depicts the coat of arms of Ukraine.
Both the 1 oz Gold Archangel and 1 oz Silver Archangel will have limited mintages in 2018, with 30,000 Silver coins and just 5,000 Gold coins being produced. Additionally, this is the first 1 oz Gold release since 2015.
The Archangel Michael is deeply rooted in the Christian faith. Mentioned throughout the Bible, Michael led God’s armies against the forces of evil, defeating Satan. Michael is now generally referred to as the angel of protection. The archangel also has meanings in the Jewish and Islamic faiths as well. In Judaism, Michael was known as the protector of Israel.
