To the Ukrainian people, the archangel Michael is a protector of the capital city of Kiev and the estate of Ukraine. The National Bank of Ukraine manufactures these elaborate coins with astounding craftsmanship and low mintages, catching the eye of investors and collectors alike around the globe.
The Ukrainian Archangel Michael coins debuted in 2011 with just three options available: a 1 oz silver coin, a 1 oz gold coin, and a oz gold coin. In 2012, the National Bank of Ukraine expanded the gold platform to include these oz Ukrainian Gold Archangel Michael coins and 1/10 oz coin. The latter two fractional weights were initially quite popular with investors, however in recent years the oz has clawed its way back to the top as the most popular weight in the gold version.
All 2016 oz Ukrainian Gold Archangel Michael Coins in this listing are in BU condition. Coins in BU condition have no signs of wear and tear, however you may notice minor flaws such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks from the striking of blanks during the production process.
On the obverse of the 2016 oz Ukrainian Gold Archangel Michael Coin youll find the image of Saint Michael. Known as the leader of the army of God, it is his duty to lead the forces of good in epic battles against evil to protect the children of God. For the Ukrainian people, Michael is viewed as the honored protector of the capital city and estate of Ukraine.
The reverse of these coins includes an image of the coat of arms for the nation of Ukraine. Located in Eastern Europe on the very border between Europe and Russia, Ukraine has long been in the sphere of influence for the Russians. These coins are issued by the National Bank of Ukraine, which engraves its name on the reverse in Ukrainian. All engravings on the obverse and reverse are in the native Ukrainian tongue.
