Capture the profound awe of the Old Testament with the 2011 Elijah in the Whirlwind Silver NIS 1 from the Holy Land Mint.

This commemorative coin is composed of 14.4 grams of .925 sterling silver and depicts the scene from Kings II, 2:11-13 in the Bible:

“As they were walking along and talking together, suddenly a chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and separated the two of them, and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind. Elisha saw this and cried out, ‘My father! My father! The chariots and horsemen of Israel!’ And Elisha saw him no more. Then he took hold of his garment and tore it in two. Elisha then picked up Elijah’s cloak that had fallen from him and went back and stood on the bank of the Jordan.”

The reverse shows the incredible moment when Elijah rides the flaming chariot, drawn by a pair of fiery horses, up into heaven. The wind whips around him, and Elisha stands below in awe and sadness as his master leaves him. This moment marks the transition to Elisha’s role as a prophet.

The obverse features the face value of one New Sheqel, with “Israel” written below it in English, Hebrew and Arabic. The inscription ELIJAH WENT UP BY A WHIRLWIND INTO HEAVEN 2 Kings 2:11 is around the rim in English and Arabic. The same phrase is written in artistic flame-like letters in Hebrew in the top-right. The Israel State Emblem is marked in the top center.

This coin encapsulates an entire story. Bring that story home when you purchase your 2011 Elijah in the Whirlwind Silver NIS 1 from Provident Metals today.
