For centuries mankind has had a clear idea of the appearance of angels. In many paintings these heavenly creatures are depicted as cute children with curly hair and small wings or as grown up angels in long robes and with large wings.
Translated from ancient Greek, “angel“ means messenger or emissary. According to different religions these spiritual beings were created by God to assist him.
Angels symbolize the connection between God and man and between Heaven and Earth. There are angels of destiny to which group the personal guardian angels belong. Others are messengers who serve Jesus or the Holy Spirit and others again are angels of nature.
This silver coin depicts an angel with wings in 3D technique, used for the first time in this way.
