The only angel in the Austrian Mint’s interfaith Guardian Angels series not recognised as an archangel by the Roman Catholic church, Uriel, the subject of the fourth coin, comforts us in dark moments, gives us energy and helps us find the joy in life.

Meaning ‘the light of God’ or ‘God is my light’ in Hebrew, Uriel is symbolised on the coin’s obverse in the form of stylised flames that leap from an ornate brazier framed by the letter U. Created by our state-of-the-art colour-application technique, the yellow vine motif that surrounds it makes this pocket-sized lucky token even more special. The coin’s reverse features an adaptation of a depiction of Uriel on a stained-glass window in the Church of St Mary, in the village of Mortenhoe, Devon, south-west England. Made by Selwyn Image (1849-1930) around 1890, the window shows Uriel as a young man with short hair and a halo. In his hand he holds a stylised sun bearing the word Sol, meaning sun in Latin.
