She is driving a chariot pulled by lions who amplify her power over difficulties and a successful victory in all matters.
In ancient Rome, Victoria was the Goddess of Victory and as a winged Goddess, these attributes allowed her to mediate and deliver messages between the Gods and Humankind. On this medal, she appears carrying a a laurel wreath - the symbol of Peace with her arm outstretched to a hopeful future. She is a symbol of success and determination, her presence refers to success in all undertakings.

Her winged image was adapted into art throughout the ages and can be be recognized as the angels we know today.
