The symbol of the dove has a storied history, beginning with the story of Noah’s Ark (Genesis 8:11) in which the dove returned with an olive branch, signaling the end of God's judgment and the beginning of a new covenant with man. Throughout medieval history, the dove was a renowned figure in both Christian and Hebrew manuscripts, even appearing in ancient Roman catacombs. The dove serves as a symbol of the Holy Spirit in Christian iconography, and was even told to have whispered the words of God into the ear of Muhammad. The dove has evolved to symbolize peace across the world, as it once did and will continue to be the inspiration for a brighter future.
These Gold bars depict a dove, the symbol of peace and purity, in flight over the skyline of Jerusalem, which means "City of Peace" in Hebrew.
