Greek Vasilopita Cake Coin


This Official Golden Vasilopita Coin, minted by Father George L. Papadeas in the early 1960's showcased the joy and anticipation of the one lucky enough get the only coin in the entire cake.

This coin symbolizes the centuries-old Orthodox Custom of placing a coin in the New Year's Cake or Basil's Bread prior to baking, so no one knows ahead of time, who will be the winner.

The custom was based on the Philanthropy of St. Basil the Great in antiquity, and today reminds us of what Christianity is all about.
