The Armor of God is based on a scripture found in the New Testament. The Apostle Paul states in Ephesians 6:12-13, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”
Paul then describes the individual pieces of armor in verses 14-17. “Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with the truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Finally, in verse 18, Paul admonishes us to pray always.
On the front side of the coin are two shields bearing the letters “RWH,” which stand for “Return With Honor.” This reminds us of the importance of not just serving, but serving honorably.

History of Key Chains
Key rings, like the jailer’s ring of keys, date back as far as the invention of the lock. Locks were handmade and very expensive. Because of this, there were very few of them.
It wasn’t until Linus Yale invented the cylinder lock (1848) and mass-produced inexpensive locks that keys were carried by the general population. One of the earliest souvenir keychains dates back to the World’s Fair in Chicago, 1893.
In the 1920’s Henry Ford mass-produced the automobile, and shortly there after the first car was stolen. This trend forced Ford to use a Yale style locking mechanism to secure his product from people just driving away in them. Key chains soon became a popular way to advertise.
