The story tells of his Samson’s strength and the defeat of one of his many obstacles, a fierce lion. As depicted in Judges 14:5-6 (NCV), “Samson went down with his father and mother to Timnah, as far as the vineyard near there. Suddenly, a young lion came roaring toward Samson! The Spirit of the Lord entered Samson with great power, and he tore the lion apart with his bare hands. For him it was as easy as tearing apart a young goat.”

Each 2 oz Silver Samson Slays the Lion coin comes with a certificate of authenticity, providing the coin’s minting specifications. The certificate also features the biblical verses from the book of Judges that Gustave Doré used as his inspiration for his 1865 wood-engraved scene, “Samson Slaying a Lion.” An image Doré's artwork used as a basis for the design is also featured on the certificate.
