One of the cornerstone tales in the Christian Bible is the story of Adam and Eve. The Bible says that God created all of mankind in His image. While the Hebrew Bible makes no specific mention of a single man and woman, Christians are aware of the tale of Adam and Eve, and their banishment from the Garden of Eden. The 2016 Niue Adam and Eve Biblical 2 oz Silver Coin Series contains 2 Troy oz of .999 pure silver and boasts a face value of $2. The coin is fully backed by the government of the island nation Niue.
Genesis 3:22-24 tells the story of Adam and Eve, particularly of the moment when Adam and Eve are cast out of the Garden of Eden and into the world that exists beyond. God is said to have created all of mankind in his image, but in the Christian bible, these two individuals have a name. Adam was his first creation, a man in his image.
After creating Adam, God determined that Adam needed a partner. He created a female companion for Adam, using one of his rib bones. This Christian Bible story is referred to as creationism. It details how God populated the Earth with humans who were made in his image through the children who came from Adam and Eve.
The obverse design of the 2016 Niue Adam and Eve Biblical 2 oz Silver Coin Series features the right-profile effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty appears on the obverse of all commonwealth coinage, and this third-generation depiction was on the coins from 1984 until 1997. It was later replaced in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadleys design. This image was designed by Raphael Maklouf.
The reverse design of the 2016 Niue Adam and Eve Biblical 2 oz Silver Coin Series captures the moment when the heavens opened up and an angel cast Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden, into the world outside. The angel is shown with a long sword in hand. Cracks of lightning can be seen streaking across the sky as Adam and Eve depart the garden of paradise.
God gave Adam and Eve just one single rule. To avoid eating the fruit from the forbidden tree. Satan, disguised as a snake, convinced Eve to eat a piece of the fruit and to share it with Adam. This led to them being cast out of the Garden of Eden.
