Purchase this spectacular antiqued 2 oz silver coin from the Scottsdale Mint Biblical series, featuring Gustav Dore's engraving of Daniel in the Lion's Den.
The reverse of this coin is based on Daniel 6:22-24, in which Daniel describes how God's angel shut the lion's mouth so they would not hurt him. Daniel appears to be walking with caution, surrounded by the skeletons of those who failed to make it out of the den alive.
This coin has an unusual rimless design which allows the design to fill the entire field of the coin. The coin also features a wonderful, hand-finished antique patina that makes it appear as though it is an aged and treasured family heirloom. The rim of the coin matches the rest of the coin with it's weathered appearance, and has a laser-engraved serial number that matches the number on the antique-feeling certificate of authenticity.
The reverse features an adaptation of Gustav Dore's 1865 engraving by sculptor D'Almeida Novissimo. As with all of Dore's work, the atmosphere is dark and brooding.
It has a strictly limited mintage of only 1499, and is sure to sell out quickly.
This coin ships in a book-style case meant to resemble a 19th century bible.
