Inspired by the powerful example of St. Florian, the third century Roman Soldier who was put to death for rescuing Christians from the ravages of fire, modern-day firefighters brave the smoke and flames to ensure our safety.
This coin is dedicated to professional firefighters throughout the world whose heroic service keeps us safe.
The obverse contains the Maltese Cross logo of the IAFF. Worn by the Knights of St. John, the legendary warriors of the Crusades, the Maltese Cross has been worn as a badge of honor by firefighters for centuries. The reverse depicts Saint Florian, Patron Saint of Firefighters, and a modern-day firefighter extinguishing a blaze.
Minted in a cuper nickel alloy, this coin is given an antique finish. Each coin comes packaged with a detailed header card that describes the mission and history of the IAFF
