The story originates in the Bible, in Chapter 6 of the book of Daniel. God’s faithful disciple, Daniel, refuses to stop praying to God, despite an order from the king. As punishment, Daniel is thrown into a den of fearsome lions.
Regretting his actions, the king goes repentantly to the den the next day, mourning is loyal friend. To his great surprise and wonder, Daniel has survived the night unharmed. The king has Daniel saved from the den, and Daniel’s rivals—who set him up for failure—were thrown into the den. The lions did not hesitate, and the enemies were destroyed.
The pivotal scene from this story is reenacted on the reverse of this silver coin. Daniel offers prayers to heaven through the bars of his horrible pit. Though lions snarl on either side, he is unharmed.
The obverse marks the face value of 2 New Sheqels, and features a small roaring lion. The Israel State Emblem is marked toward the top rim, with “Israel” written in English, Hebrew, and Arabic. Around the rim, DANIEL IN THE DEN OF LIONS is inscribed in the same three languages.
