All fire fighters aim to be as effective as Florian of Lorch, the Roman commander who achieved sainthood by saving a town from fiery doom with the use of a single bucket of water. Known as the patron saint of fire fighters, this coin captures the connection between the modern fire fighter and the ancient one in stunning detail, and will inspire today’s fire fighters when carried or displayed.

Florian lived most of his life in the third century. As a commander of elite centurions, he organized a brigade that specialized in fire fighting. Some accounts say he martyred himself when he refused to make Roman religious sacrifices, while others say he would not round up and torture Christians. Florian is revered today in central Europe and his name is commonly substituted for fire fighter in German.

Commemorating the skill and conviction of modern fire fighters who brave the perils of flame and smoke, the obverse depicts St. Florian and a 21st century fire fighter both at work at the saving of lives threatened by conflagration. The engravable reverse features traditional fire fighters riding their equipment to their next call and an area for engraving with room enough for a compliment, a boast, a credo, a date – any language appropriate for those who serve in the footsteps of St. Florian.

Minted in the USA from special deep-relief coining dies; struck from solid bronze, and hand-finished with an antique patina for exceptional quality and detail; the engravable St. Florian challenge coin pays tribute to the courageous fire fighters of today who walk into hell to save us on Earth.  


This coin fits in a 1.8" Medallion Plate Cover
