Continue Your Biblical Series with the Third 2019 Release
Continuing the 2019 Biblical Series with an iconic story, this third release of the year depicts the story of the firstborn slain. This powerful coin, marking the 27th overall release of the series, is now available at APMEX.
The story tells of God ordering angels to strike down firstborn Egyptian children. As listed in Exodus 12:29-30 (NLT), “And that night at midnight, the Lord struck down all the firstborn sons in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn son of Pharaoh, who sat on his throne, to the firstborn son of the prisoner in the dungeon. Even the firstborn of their livestock were killed. Pharaoh and all his officials and all the people of Egypt woke up during the night, and loud wailing was heard throughout the land of Egypt. There was not a single house where someone had not died.”
Each 2 oz Silver Firstborn Slain coin comes with a certificate of authenticity, which features the biblical verses from the book of Exodus that Gustave Doré used as his inspiration for his 1866 wood-engraved scene, “The Firstborn of the Egyptians Are Slain.” An image of Doré's artwork is also featured on the certificate.
Scottsdale Mint is known for its compelling series and the Biblical Series is exemplifies the mint's standard. Each release depicts a story from the Bible, with both the Old Testament and the New Testament represented, including Noah's ark, the nativity, the Ten Commandments and more.
Similar to previous releases in the series, this 2 oz coin contains .999 fine Silver ad features an antique finish with a high relief, rimless design. The obverse features the Raphael Maklouf-designed likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II surrounded by the coin's weight, face value and purity. The edge is engraved with the unique serial number given to each coin, from 1 to 1499.
