The obverse of this beautiful Silver round bears the outline of the city of Jerusalem with an angelic dove in flight above. Listed on the reverse is the year 2013, along with the year 5773 written in Hebrew. Its weight of one troy ounce, .999 fine Silver and the Holy Land Mint logo are also listed on the reverse. These first year of issue rounds have a very low mintage of 15,000! Orders in multiples of 20 rounds are packaged in sealed tubes.
Jerusalem in Hebrew means "City of Peace” and 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 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.
