The Archangel Michael Series debuted in 2011 with these 1 oz silver coins. While the National Bank of Ukraine maintains very low mintage figures for the coins, the exact mintage has skewed upward in recent years. The 2011 issue, for example, had just 10,000 coins released. The 2015 release marked the high point at 26,990 in total. In general, the bank aims to keep mintage below 30,000 annually.
Michael is one of Gods angels and is known as an archangel, which is a high ranking angel. It is Michaels job to lead the armies of God into battle whenever called upon. In the Book of Revelations, Michael defeated Satan in a battle between the forces of good and evil.
