St. Michael, the Archangel, commanded the army of God against the renegade Lucifer, defeating him in an epic battle that resulted in Lucifer’s eternal banishment from Heaven.
For centuries, St. Michael has served as a symbol of the triumph of Good over Evil and his name continues to be associated with those who strive to bring about justice in the world. Today, he is revered as the patron saint of law enforcement, inspiring all those who risk their enforcement, inspiring all those who risk their lives to uphold the law and protect us from society’s most dangerous elements.
This coin salutes the courage and skill exhibited by law enforcement professionals each day as they carry out their mission to keep us safe.
Minted in deep relief using a special “splash minting” process, this coin is struck in a brass alloy in an antique finish.
