Frank Galindo submitted this item about a medal celebrating St. Eligius. Thank you.
New Medal Designed by Renowned Italian Sculptor
Sergio Pasetto has recently announced his new medal design honoring St. Eligius the Patron Saint of Numismatists. This issue will be a limited number of pieces. The medal was originally created in 2022 and only three were made. He was encouraged by a collector of St. Eligius medals to make a few more to be available to collectors of St. Eligius medals.
The medal's text reads from the top then continuing to the right reads
ST. ELIGIUS NUMISMATIST BROTHERHOOD U.S.A. FOUNDED IN SAN ANTONIO TEXAS 1995, There are four coins which are two French and two Swiss pieces around the medal enhancing the design.
The central figure is St. Eligius wearing a miter and striking coins. In the background there is a furnace. At the left is a basket with his working tools. Also, to the left on a ledge a cat observes his friend using his hammer, which is a symbol associated with the Saint. On the right side above the word BROTHERHOOD is amphora dropping water on a plant, which is a symbol of faith.
The octagon-shaped medal's dimensions are approximately 5 1/5 x 6 1/4
