The reverse of the coin shows a detail adapted from the famous depiction of Saint Michael fighting the dragon, painted on the altar of the church of Saint Miquel de Soriguerola in Catalonia, Spain. The painting, which dates from the end of the 13th century, is credited to an anonymous painter known as Mestre de Soriguerola and can be found today in the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya in Barcelona.
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.
