As detailed in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke, following his baptism at the hands of John the Baptist, Jesus made his way into the Judean Desert to fast for 40 days and nights. Near the end of this fasting, the devil appeared to him offering Jesus wealth and power if he would only kneel down before him and accept his authority.

Jesus refrained from this temptation and ultimately went on to begin his ministry in Galilee. The Biblical Series of silver bullion from Scottsdale Mint captures the artworks of Gustave Dore and his depictions of biblical scenes in stunning detail on silver coins. Dore was a noted French artist, printmaker, illustrator, and sculptor. One of his greatest collections is his illustration for the Bible completed in 1866 that went on to enjoy a major exhibition in London in 1867.

On the reverse of the 2018 2 oz Temptation of Jesus Biblical Silver Coin is Dore’s depiction of the moment Satan made his ultimate offer of evil to Jesus. During the height of his fasting, Jesus was led to a mountaintop by Satan and offered power and control over all of humanity if he would but kneel before Satan.

The obverse of all 2018 Biblical Silver Coin releases includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This series uses the definitive third-generation effigy of Her Majesty created in 1984 by Raphael Maklouf and widely regarded as one of the most ornate of Her Majesty’s portraits on coinage.

These 2018 2 oz Temptation of Jesus Biblical Silver Coins are available to you for purchase online today with an antique polish. The coins in this series have unique serial numbers engraved on the edges and ship inside of bible-themed boxes. The Certificate of Authenticity includes the chapter and verse of Matthew’s gospel in which Satan’s temptation of Jesus occurs.

Customer Reviews

"Amazing service and hospitality from the staff at IDC! Jason was so attentive and patient in our search for our ideal watches. He took us through several options, had us try every watch we were interested in, took our information and continued searching for options. A few hours later, we had our watches on hold and ready for pick up! He located a watch that I LOVE, and a unique piece for my husband. We are grateful to have found our new Jeweler for many pieces to come!"
