In ancient Rome, Victoria was the Goddess of Victory and is the Peace Angel of the United Kingdom. She was designed to replicate the Angel Victoria similar to the statue surmounting the Queen Victoria Memorial , in front of Buckingham Palace in London. 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.
In Rome, Victoria came to be regarded as the protecting goddess of the Senate and her statue in the Curia Julia was the cause of the final combat between Christianity and Paganism toward the end of the 4th century. Her winged image was adapted into art throughout the ages and can be be recognized as the angels we know today.
The medal is cast in Sterling Silver using the lost wax method from an original WW1 British Victory Medal. We find the emergence of the Angel Victoria at this time remarkable as it was originally issued in 1918 during the Spanish Flu pandemic. The chain is tarnish free and dipped in Sterling Silver.
