Saints Cosmas and Damian were twin brothers who did great work as physicians in their time. They never charged for their work and encouraged the Christian faith to all those who they healed. They are now remembered as the patron saints of physicians and surgeons. Their feast day falls on September 26th each year. This medal would be a great gift to give any Catholic doctor.
The medal comes in two sizes, inch (medium) and 1 inch (large). Medal measurements are from the bottom of the medal to the top of the eye for the chain. The medium medal comes with an 18 inch gold plated chain and the large medal comes with a 24 inch chain. This 14 kt gold filled patron saint medal can be engraved up to 30 characters.
Please know our Engraving Service may take an additional 2-4 business days prior to the shipment of your item. Also this medallion will come inside of a gift box so that you can easily give this as a gift to any Catholic in your life.
Our Gold medals are a custom order. The medals are not made until your order is processed so this may add a day or two before we can ship the medal.
