“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” That famous quote from the great philosopher Plato captures the spirit of the 2013 David Playing for Saul Silver Proof NIS 2 from the Holy Land Mint. The 18th coin in the Biblical Art Series, each piece is composed of 31.1 grams of .925 sterling silver.

The coin shows David, beloved of God, playing the lyre to ease King Saul’s depression. In the Bible, the book of Samuel describes the rise and fall of Saul and the way David rose from humble shepherd boy to warrior and future king.

The reverse captures this story with the image of old king Saul in the background, slumped over, his crown in sharp relief against the field. David is in the foreground, playing the lyre and observing the king.

The obverse includes the denomination of 2 New Sheqels. The Israel State Emblem is prominent in the top left, and ISRAEL is written below in English, Hebrew and Arabic. The bottom-center of the coin features David’s lyre. Around the rim is the inscription DAVID PLAYING FOR SAUL 1 SAMUEL 16 in English, Hebrew and Arabic.
