Scottsdale Mint’s Biblical Series Continues at APMEX
APMEX, Inc., the nation’s largest Precious Metals e-retailer, is pleased to announce the fourth 2018 release of Scottsdale Mint’s famed Biblical Series is now available.
In 2015, Arizona-based Scottsdale Mint introduced a series that features stories from the Bible – both well-known and some more obscure – with six unique releases each year. Some of these stories include Adam and Eve, Jesus’ baptism and Noah’s Ark. This latest release depicts the daughter of Herod receiving the head of John the Baptist.
Similar to previous releases in the series, this 2 oz coin contains .999 fine Silver with an antique finish and a high relief, rimless design. The reverse depicts Gustave Doré’s illustration of John the Baptist after his beheading. The obverse features the likeness of Queen Elizabeth II surrounded by the weight, face value and purity. The edge is engraved with the unique serial number, from 1 to 1499, signifying the limited mintage.
Each 2 oz Silver John the Baptist coin comes with a certificate of authenticity, listing the coin’s minting specifications. The certificate also features the biblical verses Doré used as his inspiration along with an image of his original artwork used as a basis for this Silver coin design. The Scottsdale Mint issues the coin by the authority of the island of Niue, where it is legal tender.
This exceptional coin is now available and makes an excellent addition, or start, to any biblical collection. Each Biblical Series release is highly anticipated – be sure to shop this new release and the entire series, now available at APMEX.
