Martin Luther Medal Countdown Project

Between 2011 and 2017 – the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation – give the children, their families and all members of your congregation a series of 9 medallions in gold anodized aluminum to collect to create excitement in learning about Luther and the Reformation. For adults interested in collecting the series and numismatic and historic collectors, medals will also be available in antique bronze and .999 silver.

 Above: Images of the finished gold anodized version of medals number 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9, and the antique bronze version of medals number 2, 4, 6 and 8. The obverse of most of the medals are similar, focusing on Luther (either as a monk or doctor of the church) looking left at an image suggesting the event depicted on the reverse side – here the lightning storm (#1), the door to the Erfurt Monastery where Luther became a monk (#2), the city of Rome (#3), the tower of the Castle Church in Wittenberg where he received his doctor’s degree (#4), Luther’s tower study in the Augustinian monastery in Wittenberg (#5) and the printing of the 95 Theses. Frederick the Wise and the Castle Church are on the obverse of (#6), Jan Hus and the Cathedral in Bohemia on (#7) and Charles V, King of Spain and Holy Roman Emperor on (#8). Actual size of medals is 1 1/2 inches. Click on the image above and then click again for a larger version.
