Edition Name: Ex Cathedra
Finish: Antique Bronze
2013 – 50 coins
Cydra Vaux was Gregson Vaux’s sister. She died on July 13, 2013 at the age of 51, after battling cancer for many years. This coin design is to honor her memory.
This coin is unadorned antique bronze. The phrase “Ex Cathedra” is Latin for “from the chair”. The chair was the symbol of the teacher in the ancient world—the post of university professor is still referred to as “the chair”—and bishops to this day have a cathedra, a seat or throne, as a symbol of their teaching and governing authority.
