As Christmas comes around each year, so do the retellings of the birth of Christ as described in the Gospels of Luke and Matthew. This set of cold enamel coins brings that story to life with seven colorful designs:
Gabriel’s Incarnation, where the angel Gabriel visits Mary.
The Announcement to Joseph, where an angel of the Lord visits Joseph in a dream to tell him of the Immaculate Conception,
Arrival in Bethlehem, where Joseph and Mary travel to Judea
The Shepherds and the Angels, where an angel appears to shepherds to spread news of the birth of Jesus.
The Three Magi, who came from the East to worship the newborn Christ.
Jesus in the Manger, showing Mother Mary laying the newborn Jesus down to sleep.
Madonna and Child, showing Mary holding the Baby Jesus.
Cold enamel is a pigmented epoxy resin which gives the effect of enamel without the use of high temperatures. The resulting finish is attractive, durable and resistant to the wear of frequent handling. Plus, each coin is 10 Lire legal tender in Italy and comes in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition. Each coin will also arrive in its own protective capsule, with the set beautifully housed in a presentation box and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
This comprehensive set will make a thoughtful addition to any religious or holiday-themed collection as well as being a beautifully spiritual gift at Christmas time. Secure one for yourself or for anyone on your list that would appreciate the faith represented by this colorful collection.
