The patron saint of pilgrims and travelers, Raphael, the prototype guardian angel, is the inspiration for the third coin in our talismanic Guardian Angels series. Worshiped by Christians and Jews for his special healing powers, according to the Old Testament story Tobias and the Angel, Raphael gave those powers to Tobias in the form of the vital organs of the fish that had attacked the young man in the River Tigris.
Through the ages and across many faiths, people have looked to angels for protection. Worshiped by Christians, Jews and Muslims alike, these benevolent but invisible spirits have been widely depicted throughout art history. This has been the inspiration for the design of the four superb coins in our talismanic Guardian Angels series, which feature the angels Michael and Gabriel in 2017 and Raphael and Uriel in 2018. Not only superbly crafted little pieces of art history, our Guardian Angels are pocket-sized lucky tokens that will make you feel someone is watching over you.
