    Gilded souvenir token is dedicated to the Orthodox shrine of St. Mina’s Monastery. The place is located in Egypt near Alexandria and is administered by the Coptic Orthodox Church. It’s believed to have the miracle healing ability, so the monastery attracts a number of religious pilgrims. One side of the rectangular token shows the building of the monastery itself with its name placed next to the image. The other side of the token bears the picture referring to the story of St. Mina’s Monastery establishment. According to the Coptic legend, the body of Saint Mina was kept in a church of Alexandria till the Pope saw the angel telling him to bury the body of the saint in the Western Desert. Thus the Pope took camels and transported the St. Mina’s relict to the desert; he buried it where camels stopped. The monastery was built there some time later.
