APMEX, Inc., a leading online precious metals retailer based in Oklahoma City, has announced the final 2018 release of Scottsdale Mint’s famed Biblical Series is now available.
Introduced in 2015, the Scottsdale Mint Biblical Coin Series highlights stories from The Bible, including the pale horse, the nativity, the three wise men and more. The Ascension of Christ, depicting the departure of Jesus from Earth into the presence of God, is the sixth release of 2018 and the 24th release of the overall Biblical Series.
Similar to all releases in the series, this 2 oz coin contains .999 fine silver with an antique finish and a high-relief, rimless design. The reverse depicts Gustave Doré’s illustration of Jesus ascending into heaven in front of his disciples. The obverse features the likeness of Queen Elizabeth II surrounded by the weight, face value, and purity. The edge is engraved with the unique serial number, from 1 to 1499, signifying the limited mintage.
Each 2 oz silver Ascension of Christ coin comes with a certificate of authenticity, listing the coin’s minting specifications. The certificate also lists Acts 1:9-11 (NLT), which Doré used as his inspiration, and features an image of the original artwork used as a basis for this silver coin design. The Scottsdale Mint issues the coin by the authority of the island of Niue, where it is legal tender.
This exceptional coin is now available and makes an excellent addition, or start, to any biblical collection. Each Biblical Series release is highly anticipated – be sure to shop this 2 oz Silver Ascension of Jesus release and the entire series, now available at APMEX.
