Holiday Medals


Recommended Posts

Nice, I really like the one with the angels.

 

The first one should be interesting to a few people here for a number of reasons. First the religious aspect and time of year. Second that the artist is Durer, who is also subject of an earlier thread here concerning a commemorative medal by Goetze. Thirdly because the same work appears on the proof 100 Pesetas coin of tthe Republic of Equatorial Guinea (1970). Fourth, because it is neat in its own right ;-)

 

Here's the Equatorial Guinea rendition though............

Yes, the "Praying Hands" has a considerable amount of history.
