For centuries, firefighters the world over have been encouraged by the compelling example of St. Florian of Lorch, the third-century Roman Soldier who dared to defy Emperor Diocletian’s persecution of Christians, risking his life to rescue innocent villagers from the fires set by his fellow soldiers.
Demonstrating selfless dedication to duty and a tireless commitment to protecting those most in need, these courageous men and women carry out their life-saving calling with inspiring self-confidence and unmatched skill. Exhibiting an instinct for decisive action, they willingly risk their lives each and every day, rushing in without hesitation where most fear to tread.
Combining form and function, this intricately detailed and highly versatile coin knife is a fitting tribute to all firefighters. The obverse depicts Saint Florian and a modern-day firefighter extinguishing a blaze. The stunning montage minted on the reverse highlights the heroic actions of firefighters throughout history.
This one-of-a-kind knife features cutlery-grade, stainless steel blades that fold neatly into a uniquely designed die-struck coin handle. Struck in MerlinGold,® a proprietary brass alloy that simulates the look and feel of gold, the handle contains an antique bronze finish. Each knife comes mounted in a museum-quality leatherette presentation box.
