The Scottsdale Mint Biblical Coin Series highlights stories from the Bible, including the ascension of Christ, the Ten Commandments or David & Goliath.

Similar to previous releases in the series, this 2 oz coin contains .999 fine Silver and 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.

Each 2 oz Silver Crown of Thorns coin comes with a certificate of authenticity, listing the coin’s specifications along with the biblical verses from the book of John that Gustave Doré used as his inspiration for his 1866 wood-engraved scene, “The Crown of Thorns.” An image Doré's artwork used as a basis for the design is also featured on the certificate.
