The Biblical Series of silver coins, released by the Scottsdale Mint for the island nation of Niue, features key stories and moments from the bible, most of them dark and haunting. The 2019 Niue Crown of Thorns Biblical Series 2 oz Silver Coin focuses on the moment that Jesus was mockingly crowned with a crown of thorns. This crown tore into his flesh and was worn throughout the crucifixion. As with all each of the other coins in this collection, this 2nd design released in 2019 is packaged beautifully, in a commemorative box that resembles the bible. The coin contains 2 Troy oz of .999 pure silver.
Each of the 2019 Niue Crown of Thorns Biblical Series 2 oz Silver Coins arrives inside of packaging that reflects the bible. Also included with each coin is an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity that reflects the serial number that is laser-etched on the edge of the coin. The packaging for the coins also features the bible verse that inspired the design.
The bible verse that serves as inspiration for the design of the 2019 Niue Crown of Thorns Biblical Series 2 oz Silver Coin is Mark 15:16-19. This verse speaks of the moment when Roman soldiers made a mockery of Jesus when his supporters made claims that was the new King of the Jews. The soldiers placed Jesus in purple robes and forced a crown of thorn branches onto his head. All during his trial and crucifixion, Jesus bled the crown of thorns that was forced upon his head.
The obverse design of the 2019 Niue Crown of Thorns Biblical Series 2 oz Silver Coin features the third-generation effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This design was introduced to British and commonwealth coinage in 1984, and was in use until 1997. The Queen is pictured with a youthful profile, as she wears the Royal Diadem crown.
The reverse design of the 2019 Niue Crown of Thorns Biblical Series 2 oz Silver Coin features an image of Jesus seated, while soldiers look on and jeer while crowning him as the king of the Jews. The soldiers are said to have cried out, Hail, king of the Jews to him, and knelt down to mock worship him, before they spit upon him. Crown of Thorns is etched upon the reverse side of the coin.
This popular collection of coins is backed by the government of Niue. The 2019 Niue Crown of Thorns Biblical Series 2 oz Silver Coin is the 2nd design released in 2019 and the 26th in this highly collectible series.
