DAYTONA BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, Nov. 30, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The online store, Patmos Press, was created by Father George Papadeas, the first American-born Greek Orthodox priest in the United States, who for almost 60 years has distributed the most popular Easter books and gifts to the Eastern Orthodox community. Patmos Press is pleased to announce that the official Saint Basil Vasilopita gold coin is now available to order with four different options.

La Vasilopita is a cake (translated directly as “sweet basil bread”) made to honor Saint Basil’s Day on New Year’s Eve. According to tradition, a coin is baked into the cake and whoever finds it in their slice is considered blessed with good luck for the New Year. The coin is a symbol of the hope of freedom, health and happiness not only for the recipient but for all who participate in the ceremony.

Father George designed the coin to mark this spiritual and joyous occasion in the hope that families would use it to further this cherished tradition. The coin itself is struck in gilt brass with an image of Saint Basil on one side and the Byzantine eagle on the other; It serves as a unique alternative and souvenir reminder to the usual foil-wrapped quarter dollar coin so often used.

The coins are now available with four display options, the most popular of which includes a beloved Vasilopita story for those seeking a truly unique gift. There are significant quantity-based discounts available for those looking to purchase multiple coins as gifts or to use for fundraising.
