OKLAHOMA CITY, OK--(Marketwired - September 19, 2016) - The Scottsdale Mint Biblical Coin Series highlights stories from the Bible. Some of the stories include The Good Samaritan, The Last Supper, The Ten Commandments and more. The Valley of Dry Bones, depicting Ezekiel's vision that represents the rebirth of Israel, is the fifth release of 2016 and the 11th release of the overall Biblical Series.
This 2 oz coin is cast from .999 fine Silver with antique finishing and a high relief, rimless design. The reverse depicts Gustave Doré's illustration of Ezekiel overlooking a field of skeletons and corpses coming back to life. The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II surrounded by the weight, face value and purity. The edge is engraved with the unique serial number given to each coin.
"The Valley of Dry Bones is another phenomenal addition to this dramatic series," APMEX Vice President of Merchandising Andrew Martineau said. "This epic design from Gustave Doré captured in Silver stays true to what we have seen from the entire series so far. We are very excited to see what the rest of the series has in store."
With a limited mintage of 1,499, the 2 oz Silver Valley of the Dry Bones coin is the perfect addition to the Biblical Series. Each coin comes with a certificate of authenticity, listing minting specifications and a unique serial number matching the laser-engraved number on the coin's edge. The certificate also features the story of the Valley of Dry Bones and Gustave Doré's artwork, "The Vision of the Valley of Dry Bones," the design was based from. The Scottsdale Mint issues the coin by the authority of the island of Niue, where it is legal tender.
This beautiful coin is now available for purchase at APMEX.
