In 2015 the Scottsdale Mint debuted a beautiful series of collectible coins featuring scenes from the bible. The Biblical Coin Series releases five fresh designs each year, with designs that are inspired by stories in the bible. Each coin in the collection offers distinctive packaging and includes a Certificate of Authenticity. The coins have a face value of $2 and are legal tender in the island nation of Niue. With an antique finish, the 2018 Niue Ascension of Jesus Biblical Series 2 oz Silver Coin is the 5th and final design released in 2018. It is the 24th design released in the series.
The 2018 Niue Ascension of Jesus Biblical Series 2 oz Silver Coin features an antique finish that lends an old-world look to the coin, while also bringing great definition to the design on the coin. These coins are struck in high-relief, which adds a 3D effect to the design.
Included with the coins is a bible verse that describes the design. The 2018 Niue Ascension of Jesus Biblical Series 2 oz Silver Coin features a quote from Acts 1:9-11. The passage reads, After he said this, he was taken upbefore their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight. They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in whitestood beside them.1Men of Galilee,they said, why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come backin the same way you have seen him go into heaven.
The obverse design of the 2018 Niue Ascension of Jesus Biblical Series 2 oz Silver Coin features the third-generation portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This design, thought to be the most ornate of portraits of Her Majesty, was created by Raphael Maklouf in 1984.
The reverse design of the 2018 Niue Ascension of Jesus Biblical Series 2 oz Silver Coin features an image of Christ rising up into the clouds and toward heaven, while a crown watches from below. The design is based on the artwork of Gustave Dores, who famously created a collection of biblical artwork in the 1870s. Each of the coins in the collection features an image taken from the Dore collection.
