The Silver Archangel Michael coin was introduced by the National Bank of Ukraine in 2011 as an annual release coin. These coins, like many other national sovereign bullion coin programs, are released each year without change to the obverse or reverse designs in use.
In recent years, the National Bank of Ukraine has expanded the gold platform to include a ½ oz and 1/10 oz coin. Debuting in 2012, these latter two fractional weights were initially quite popular. In recent years however, the ¼ oz has clawed its way back to the top as the most popular weight in the gold version.
On the obverse of the 2015 1 oz Silver Ukrainian Archangel Michael Coin is the image of Saint Michael. He is depicted on the face of these coins wearing a full suit of armor with a halo of sunlight behind his head. In his right hand he wields a sword and his wings are outstretched behind his figure.
The reverse of the coins includes the national coat of arms for the nation of Ukraine, as well as engravings of the name of the National Bank of Ukraine. All text engravings on both the obverse and reverse sides of these coins are in the official language of the nation: Ukrainian.
