The Holy Baptism silver medal celebrates one of the most significant moments in a Christian’s life. This spiritual rebirth drives us down a new, virtuous path – now accompanied by a guardian angel to protect us and guide us towards salvation. The design of this original gift of pure silver, meant especially for children, embodies this very aspect of that belief.

The medal is minted in proof matt-gloss quality out of 31.1 grams of 999.9 fine silver in a diameter of 38.6 mm. It is a limited issue product of 1000 pieces.

The obverse depicts an innocent child sleeping on a cloud and surrounded by the gentle embrace of an angel’s wings as a halo shines above its head. You can opt to take advantage of our laser engraving option for a more personal touch.

The reverse bears the now-familiar ornamented Eastern Orthodox cross. It is surrounded by intricate floral decorations inspired by the wood carvings that adorn iconostases all over Bulgaria.

The Holy Baptism silver medal comes in a themed package that serves as both a certificate of quality and a greeting card in which you can write your heartfelt wishes.

Guardian angels

Eastern Orthodox beliefs hold that at the moment of one’s baptism – a spiritual rebirth into the Kingdom of God – each Christian gets their own guardian angel sent to protect them and guide them away from evil and towards virtue.

Angels comprise the lowest rank out of the bodiless powers of Heaven - servants of God, sent to protect and aid humanity. Their celestial nature is beyond human understanding and physical descriptions are scarce – the focus of the Holy Scriptures is always on their function, but many prophets have described the different ranks as they have appeared to them in visions.

Angels are in the closest proximity to man – in a number of writings, they appear before chosen personages in the guise of young men of unfathomable beauty as messengers and protectors. Secular and religious artworks depict them with wings, but this attribute is absent from canon descriptions. It is a symbolic representation of their role as intercessors between God and humanity, which has become an intrinsic part of the way Christians from all over the world see them – an inalienable aspect of their identity, much like the halo that signifies their holy nature.

The Orthodox Christian Cross

One of the most ancient and steeped in spiritual meaning images in the world - the cross is today best known as the symbol of Christianity. It represents the sacrifice of Jesus, through which, according to Christian doctrine, all human sins will be forgiven. The reverse of the Holy Baptism Silver Medal bears the image of an Orthodox cross decorated with floral and geometric motifs and a smaller cross at the tip of each arm.

Floral ornaments

The interwoven floral motifs framing the cross on the medal's reverse are inspired by the intricate church wood carvings, best exemplified in the altars and iconostases found in places of worship across Bulgaria. The mastery of the ancient craft is recreated using modern coin-minting technology, preserving the elegance of the ornaments and using the properties of the precious metal to highlight their beauty.
