Twin Angels Mint has minted a Solid 22 karat Gold 'Half Tremissis' to the exact weight and design standards of the original Romano-Byzantine coin, featuring the Emperor Leo VI, the Wise, & his son and heir Constantine VII of 908AD. Leo VI, earned the title of 'the Wise', for his Oracular insight which he recorded and which has survived today in two manuscripts. The Emperor had visions of the future of the 'Roman' Christian State, it's reconstruction from the ashes of a great war… yet to come. Most importantly, he saw the revelation of the 'Sleeping Emperor'. The 'Sleeping Emperor' is one who now lives among us and whom the Angel of God will reveal to all the world, among the rubble of the great war. He will be accompanied by two embodied Angels to counsel and protect him. He will be armed with the Life-giving True Cross of Christ, which was hidden somewhere in Damascus, Syria after it's capture by Sultan Salah ad-Din (Saladin) on July 4, 1187, at the battle of Hattin.Twin Angels Mint 22 karat Gold Tremissis restrikes are die-struck from steel dies, unlike jewelers' cast copies, and contain 22 Karat Gold, minted in Proof mirror finish and a guaranteed fineness of .917 fine Gold (22 karat) and a consistent Actual Gold Weight of 1/40th Troy ounce, 12 grains or 7/10ths of a Roman Scruple.The original gold Solidus of Emperor Leo VI, the Wise, was first minted in Constantinopolis in 908AD was a milestone in Art, one of the many crowning achievements from the Imperial mint in Constantinople.
