The Archangel Michael is known to the people of all the major religions of the world. Christians, Jews, and Islamists alike know him as a healer of the sick and the leader of Gods army. It is said that Michael led all the other angels in a defense of Heaven, defeating an enemy simultaneously referred to as a dragon, Satan, or the devil.

The National Bank of Ukraine was established in 1992 following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, but its headquarters long served as a central bank for the nation even within the Soviet Union dating back to 1934. Among its roles in the Ukrainian economy is the procurement of precious metal reserves and issuance of gold and silver coins.
