A religious medal is usually metallic, cast either in a round or oval shape, depicting the image of our Lord, the Blessed Mother, or another saint. Medals have also commemorated places (e.g. shrines), very important spiritual events in one’s life (e.g. first Communion or Ordination), or major historical events (e.g. a Holy Year, the proclamation of a dogma, or an apparition of the Blessed Mother). These medals are usually designed to be worn around the neck of the person or to be attached to a rosary or key chain.
