Let's strengthen our resolve to become strong in God’s supernatural power; the only power capable of defeating the satanic forces of evil (Ephesians 6:10-12). Carry this coin as a constant reminder of your resolve to accept the call to become supernaturally strong, as you say, “I’M GOING IN!”
On the front of the coin, the image of Our Lady comes from a famous sculpture entitled “Regina Pacis”(Queen of Peace) found at the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome. The sculpture was commissioned in 1918 by Pope Benedict XV during WWI. That means this is the 100th anniversary of this beautiful sculpture. The titles for Mary on the Challenge Coin are both Regina Pacis (Queen of Peace) and Virgo Potens (Virgin Most Powerful).
On the reverse side of the coin is the image of St. Michael the Archangel. The image comes from a very famous 6th-century painting of St. Michael, which hangs in Santa Maria della Concezione in Rome. The inscription, “defénde nos in proélio,” which is Latin for “Defend us in battle,” comes from the St. Michael Prayer which is prayed after all Low Masses in the Extraordinary Form.
About Challenge Coins
Challenge Coins date back to WWI (some say as far back as the Roman Empire) and were meant to be a sign of camaraderie in facing the demands of some particular challenge. In most cases, it would be military units during a wartime period.
