Immaculate Conception Medal - Miraculous Medal
Medal of the Immaculate Conception in nickle & lead free pewter with a lightly oxidised antique finish.
This medal has a special place in the hearts of Catholics worldwide and is often known as the Miraculous Medal.
The image shows the Beloved Mother when she appeared to Sister (now Saint) Catherine Laboure in the first of three apparitions in 1830. Our Lady told Sr Laboure about the Immaculate Conception and gave her the design for what was to become the Miraculous Medal. The first medal of the Immaculate Conception was made by goldsmith Adrien Vachette.
A lovely medal for wearing as a pendant, or for attaching to a rosary or chaplet.
Size: 2.5cm tall including the loop on top.
You can see a range of good quality stainless steel neck chains which are a good colour match for this medal here.
Comes with a split-ring through the loop on top for attaching/hanging.
