Product description
One of the most popular saints in the world, Saint Patrick is the Patron Saint of Ireland. Born in Scotland in 387, he turned to God at the age of 14 when he was enslaved after being captured in a raid. After escaping captivity when he was 20, Patrick was ordained into the priesthood. He was sent to Ireland in 433 to convert the Druids and the pagans to Christianity. Patrick consecrated 350 bishops, erected 700 churches, and ordained 5,000 priests and in less than 30 years, the whole of Ireland was Catholic. After years of living in poverty, traveling, and enduring much suffering, he died March 17, 461. Saint Patrick was a humble, pious, gentle man whose absolute faith in the Lord should be a shining example to each of us. So complete was his trust in God, and so important was his mission, that he feared nothing, not even death.

American Mint proudly presents this inspirational prayer ingot, designed in conjunction with the Vatican Observatory Foundation. Minted to the highest quality “Proof ” standard and layered in 24k gold, this ingot features a popular image of Saint Patrick banishing all the snakes from Ireland – an event still celebrated today as St. Patricks Day. The glorious image is beautifully colorized in the manner of a Renaissance painting. On the reverse, the “Prayer of Saint Patrick” asks for the patron Saint of Ireland’s blessing and help in serving God. Limited to only 9,999 complete collections worldwide, this uplifting prayer ingot makes a thoughtful gift for a loved one on any occasion.

The Prayer of Saint Patrick engraved on the reverse:
O Blessed Apostle of Ireland! Glorious St. Patrick! Who did become the father and benefactor of that land long before my birth, receive my prayers, and accept the sentiments of gratitude and veneration with which my heart is filled towards you. You are the channel of my grateful thanksgiving to God for having granted through you that precious gift of faith which is dearer to us than life….
Ah since I am descended from saints I will not go against them, May I begin from this moment so to love God with all my heart and serve him with all my strength. For this end, I most humbly beg your blessing O Great St. Patrick! And your particular intercession, for obtaining whatever grace you see to be most necessary for me. Amen.
