Description

10 euro Silver coin dedicated to the Angel Raphael, Brilliant Uncirculated.
Raphael, the patron saint of pilgrims and travelers, watches over us when we travel, helps us heal and comforts us.
Worshipped by Christians and Jews for his special healing powers, according to the Old Testament story Tobias and the Angel, Raphael gave those powers to Tobias in the form of the vital organs of the fish that had attacked the young man in the River Tigris.
The fish is shown crossed with a pilgrim’s staff inside the letter R, which is surrounded by the coin’s grapevine design.
The coin’s reverse shows Raphael as a young man with tousled hair and wings of peacock feathers, one hand holding a pilgrim’s staff, the other raised in a blessing.
