Comments

Archangel Michael features on the first coin in the austrian talismanic new Heavenly Messengers.
Through the ages and across many faiths people have looked to angels for protection. Worshipped by Christians, Jews and Moslems alike, these benevolent but invisible spirits have been widely depicted throughout art history.
