In drawing on Gustave Doré’s engravings for inspiration, the creative team at the Scottsdale Mint wasn’t confined to simply replicating the originals on the face of their coins. Instead, they remained true to the spirit of the original artworks while adapting the specific details as they rendered each scene into the medium of high-relief and antique-finished medallic artwork.

The 2022 The Dead Christ Biblical Silver Coin is a perfect example, featuring a beautifully antiqued rimless design that shows one of Doré’s famous Biblical scenes on its reverse. These coins ship individually housed in a card with an assay certificate, packaged in turn inside a gift box designed to resemble a Bible. Each coin comes with a Certificate of Authenticity printed on antique-styled paper, along with a passage from the Gospel of John; the serial number on the Certificate is matched by a laser-etched number on the coin’s edge.

The coin’s obverse side features Raphael Maklouf’s effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, confirming it as legal tender of Niue. This is accompanied by the inscriptions “QUEEN ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “TWO DOLLARS,” “2022,” and verification of its weight and silver contents.

The reverse side features an interpretation of Doré’s engraving showing a small group of Jesus Christ’s followers mourning his death on the cross. This is accompanied by the inscription “THE DEAD CHRIST.”

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!"
