The Mint of Austria has unveiled its second coin in the Guardian Angels series, which highlights the divine beings who are worshiped by Christians, Jews, and Muslims alike. These benevolent, but invisible, spirits have also been widely depicted throughout art history.

The second coin in this inspiring series is dedicated to the archangel Gabriel—a deity full of surprises. He is often characterized as the bringer of good news. In the Koran, he is the guardian of the gate to heaven, the angel of revelation, and the mediator between God and man. In the New Testament, Gabriel is the bringer of happy news—the angel who told the Virgin Mary that she was with child and that the child should be known as Jesus.

The centre of the obverse side of the coin features a lily framed by the initial G, which is surrounded by an ornate grapevine design. The grapevine is reddish-coloured on the silver proof version.

The image of Gabriel on the coin’s reverse is a detail from a painting by a 15th- or 16th-century painter believed to belong to the German School. The painting shows Gabriel as a young man with curly hair and a halo, pointing his fingers to the sky. His wings are decorated with peacock feathers.

The coin was designed and adapted by Helmut Andexlinger and Herbert Wähner.
