Numerous accounts on his decent deeds made his name last through the ages, thus he has been remembered as the advocate for the poor and needy. Thanks to his benefaction, he became a symbol of generosity, giving and a contemporary Christmas tradition. The coin is a perfect gift for the namesakes of the Saint, as well as a talisman for those under his care, including sailors, merchants, children and students.

Николай Чудотворец прилично представлен на этом созвездии. Белорусский - гораздо привлекательнее.

смущает только наличие Елизаветы на монете
Королева как-то что-то не туда приспособили.

С монетой что-то наворотили: и королева, и кристаллы Сваровски. Все-таки монета посвящена святому. Немножко посдержаннее бы.
