A brief annotation Cauldron for Holy Chrism of Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin is a pot for cooking, storage and sanctification of fragrant chrism. The chrism is cooked once every seven years and blessed by Patriarch of All Armenians. The Holy Chrism is intended for baptizing, marking, anointing procedures, for consecrations and sanctifications at all Christian orthodox churches.  The cauldron is silver molded, has gild applications as well as a domed lid which ends with a dove sculpture. As tall as 130 cm, the cauldron is decorated with intricate compositions and paintings carrying fragments of Christ, Abgar the King and the royal family, and images of Mother Cathedral of Etchmiadzin.  The first blessing of chrism in this cauldron was served by Patriarch of All Armenians Mkrtich I Khrimyan in 1897. "Cauldron for Holy Chrism" is the third coin of the "Treasures of Etchmiadzin" coin series.

Это слиток, а не монета. Оформление отличное! Но монета должна быть монетой
