BIO |  ОПИСАНИЕ

Dormition Cathedral in Vladimir (sometimes translated Assumption Cathedral) used to be the mother church of medieval Russia in the 13th and 14th centuries. It is part of the world heritage site entitled “White Monuments of Vladimir and Suzdal”. The cathedral was commissioned by Andrew the Pious in the capital, Vladimir, and dedicated to the Dormition of the Theotokos (Virgin Mary), whom he promoted as the patron saint of his lands.

Originally erected in 1158-1160, the 6-pillared 5-domed cathedral was expanded in 1185-1189 to reflect the augmented prestige of Vladimir. Embracing the area of 1178 sq. meters, it remained the largest of the Russian churches for the following 300 to 400 years. Unlike many other churches, the cathedral survived the great devastation and fire of Vladimir in 1239, when the Mongol hordes of Batu Khan took hold of the capital.

The exterior walls of the church are covert with elaborate carvings. The interior was painted in the 12th century and then repainted by the great Andrei Rublev and Daniil Chernyi in 1408. The Dormition Cathedral served as a model for Aristotle Fioravanti when he designed the Eponymous Cathedral in the Moscow Kremlin in 1475-1479. A lofty bell-tower, combining genuinely Russian, Gothic, and Neoclassical influences, was erected nearby in 1810.

REVERSE

The reverse designs depict nine famous icons of the Dormition Cathedral in Vladimir. The designs are very detailed and closely connected to the original icons. The centerpiece of this set depicts Jesus, and stands out, due to the bigger size of the coin. Also, the two angels are captured on bigger sized coins. A beautiful set, which will be the eye-catcher of many collections.

OBVERSE

The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

PACKAGING

The coins are packaged in an exclusive, beautifully designed wooden box. It is in an elegant case, which is doing a great job in staging these remarkable coins. The coins can be lifted up within the box, in order to display them in a proper fashion. The Certificate of Authenticity is displayed on the inner packaging and each box comes with an Andrei Rublev (1408) label in the lid.
