Adam and Eve, Issue 126

The “Adam and Eve” sculptured medal created by Karen Worth in 1993 is a riveting—almost hypnotic—piece that captures the circumference of the Eternities and ventures to explain the unexplainable to our Souls. The obverse graphically portrays the coiled serpent succeeding in the temptation of Eve, and her showing of the fruit to Adam. As a consequence of both Adam and Eve partaking of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, they were cast out, and angels with flaming swords were set to guard the Tree of Life and the gate to the Garden.

The reverse is a stark representation of the Retribution of God toward those who would disobey His laws. Adam is shown suffering the fires of Hell, yet is finally snatched from this torment by a winged heavenly Being. The agony and the ecstasy….

This “Adam and Eve” medal is struck in limited quantities by Medallic Art Company. All medals in the series of the Society of Medalists have been struck by the Medallic Art Company, America’s oldest and largest private mint.

The sculptor, Karen Worth, was elected a fellow of the National Sculpture Society in 1960, and designed her first medal for the Society of Medalists in 1963. Since that time, she has designed more than 600 coins and medals. Karen has been awarded the American Numismatic Society’s Medal of Signal Achievement, and the Sculptor of the Year gold medal.
