Crucifixion was a form of punishment used throughout the ancient world to torture and kill dissidents, traitors, and enemies.

In 1st-century Judea, Jesus Christ was arrested, tried, and crucified for speaking out against the rabbis of the Jewish temple and the ruling Roman authorities. He spoke of a new path to knowing God, and from his beliefs and teachings, a new branch of Christianity would eventually arise. Before this could happen though, he had to be put to death to cleanse mankind of their sins.
The crucifixion of Jesus Christ is portrayed on many Christian symbols today, most notably the crosses that hang in Christian, Catholic, and Lutheran churches around the globe. The symbol reminds followers of the ultimate sacrifice made by Jesus on their behalf to help them find a way to a better life and possibility of an afterlife in heaven with God.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Crucifixion Silver Shield Round is the image of Christ as his body languishes on the cross. Nailed through each hand and together through his feet, his body was left to hang on the cross until he could no longer support himself and would eventually suffocate as his lungs were unable to take in air.
Engravings on this face are simple and include the letters “INRI.” These letters are believed to have been on the cross of Jesus and in Latin says “Iesus Nazarenus, Rex Iudaeorum.” Translated into English, the initials mean Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews (or Judeans).
The reverse of the Crucifixion Silver Shield Round features the common design element used on all silver rounds in the collection. A sword is positioned on its point with an ornate design surrounding it, flames on the outer edge, and engravings identifying the series, weight, purity, and metal content of the round.
