As depicted in the Book of Revelation, Jesus is a celestial judge of the “quick and the dead” who explicitly identifies Himself as God, calling Himself the Alpha and the Omega in parallel fashion to the Deity’s self-description as “first” and “last” in the Book of Isaiah. The awe-inspiring Christ of the Second Coming shaped and influenced centuries of theology and was often depicted by a specific type of imagery asChrist Pantocrator,the Almighty. This serene and lofty version of Jesus inspires the first release in Scottsdale Mint’s Jesus Collection. The 2021 Samoa Alpha and Omega 1 oz Gold Coin is available from Provident Metals.

The 2021 Samoa Alpha and Omega Gold Coin inaugurated the Jesus Collection and ships in an ornate display case secured in an acrylic capsule. Accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity, this proof-like coin offers mirror-finish backgrounds that accentuate its beautiful engravings.
The coin’s obverse side features Samoa’s coat of arms and an elegantly decorated rim. It’s accompanied by the inscriptions “SAMOA 2021,” “1 TROY OUNCE,” “.9999 FINE GOLD,” and “20 TALA.”
An engraving of Jesus in the style ofChrist Pantocrator, inspired by a mosaic in the United States’ oldest cathedral, dominates the reverse. He is flanked by the letters Alpha and Omega and surrounded at the rim by the inscriptions “I HAVE KEPT THE FAITH” and “I HAVE FOUGHT A GOOD FIGHT,” in reference to II Timothy 4: 7-8.
The inaugural issue in the Jesus Collection, the Alpha and Omega range of coins all contribute donations with every purchase to a unique Coins for Charity project run in cooperation with the GlobalFingerprints ministry, dedicated to building a school for children in the Democratic Republic of Congo. In tribute to the spirit of Christian teachings about charity and the deeds of Jesus on Earth, this golden coin contributes $40 (USD) per purchase to a school in the village of Gemena, with a series of stretch goals in the program aiming to provide a range of amenities including an annex for hearing-impaired students, a local well, a prosthetics workshop, and a dedicated van for transporting disabled students.
