The front has a pair of cutlasses and a pair of flintlock pistols arranged into the Square and Compasses orientation, with the All-Seeing Eye in the middle, with the words “Follow the Code” around the top and the words “Follow the Light” around the bottom.
The back has a three way cross similar to the one in the logo from the East India Company. On the three cross bars are the words “Faith” Hope” and “Charity”, which are three of the main touchpoints in Masonry. In between the crosses are images of a Beehive, a Sword piercing a naked Heart, and an Ark and Anchor. Around the outside of the back of the coin are the letters “OLMGWTNHFTWS”. If you understand, you understand…
This coin comes in antique gold. The choice of this finish gives the coin a much more “aged” appearance, and also helps to bring out greater detail in the design. They are also treated with a special chemical treatment to make them look even older and more aged.
*Please note that the coin is not actually made of gold; that would make them extraordinarily expensive! These coins are made of metal and plated with a gold colored metal, then treated give them the aged appearance and bring out the detail.
