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 resin and sparkle enamel in a rainbow of colors. The name comes from 1 Corinthians 13:12

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
