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. Cydra was an artist who lived in Pittsburgh. Her artistic message often focused on the feminine divine. She asserted that if we are all made in God’s image, then God must be a woman as much as a man. She focused on showing God as female in her art.

This edition features blue, amber and white glass fused onto metal. The white glass on light blue glass is meant to evoke clouds in a sunny sky.
