A brief annotation
The fine silver convex-shaped legal tender coin is part of a new project entitled “Icons of the Great Russian icon painter Andrei Rublev.” The coin's highly accurate recreation of Rublev's painting of the Apostle Paul takes the icon from its holy shrine and places it in the hand of the collector. Paul was a loyal disciple of Christ and one of the most critical Christian missionaries. Nearly half of the books in the New Testament credit Paul as the author.
