The Good Samaritan is introduced as the fourth coin of the 2016 Scottsdale Mint Biblical Series
The Scottsdale Mint Biblical Coin Series showcases iconic stories from The Bible that have been told and re-told for centuries. This fourth coin of 2016 displays the Good Samaritan – a person who stopped to help a man who had been beaten and left for dead. This story tells of compassion and loving one another despite their differences.
This two-ounce coin is cast out of .999 fine Silver with an antique finish and a high relief, rimless design. The reverse shows the good samaritan helping the injured man onto a horse. The obverse features Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy, and the edge is engraved with a unique serial number.
“This distressed, antique coin is a stunning addition to the series,” APMEX Vice President of Merchandising Andrew Martineau said. “The story of the Good Samaritan is beautifully depicted within the details of the coin as the imagery clearly communicates the compassion shown toward those whose current situation may not be as fortunate as ours.”
The 2 oz Silver Good Samaritan coin has a limited mintage of 1,499. Each coin comes with a certificate of authenticity, giving the coin’s minting specifications, a unique serial number that matches the laser-etched number on the coin and the story of the Good Samaritan. The certificate also features Gustave Doré’s artwork, “Arrival of the Good Samaritan at the Inn,” the coin’s design was based off. The Scottsdale Mint issues the coin by the authority of the island of Niue, where it is legal tender.
This stunning coin is now available for pre-sale at APMEX and will be available to ship July 21.
