Exciting new series of collector coins bringing to life Gargoyles and Grotesques from around the world and the buildings they appear on.  The first coin in series features the gargoyle called DECAY with the Washington National Cathedral, in the background.  Decay is one of 112 gargoyles that adorn the National Cathedral and was installed in the 1960s.  Decay is widely considered the ‘scariest’ gargoyle on the Cathedral.
“What is the meaning of these unclean monkeys, these savage lions and monstrous creatures?” – St Bernard, 12th Century.  In architecture a gargoyle is a stone carving of a fantastic or mythical figure used for decorative purposes and are found on structures all over the world.   They serve a dual purpose – to protect the building from dark forces as well as divert rain from the building as they are fitted with an elaborate downspout.  Grotesques are architectural creatures like a gargoyle but do not have a functioning drainage capability.  Gargoyles and grotesques date back to ancient times but were popularized in 12th century Medieval times in Europe.
The Washington National Cathedral is a cathedral of the Episcopal church located in Washington DC.  The Cathedral took 83 years to build and was finally completed in 1990.  It is the sixth largest cathedral in the world and is listed on the US National Register of Historic Places.
