Each of the 2016 2 oz Daniel in the Den of Lions Silver Biblical Coins in this listing is available to you inside of an exciting box that mimics the appearance of the Bible itself, with script reading “Scottsdale Mint Biblical Silver Coin Series.” Inside you’ll find the coin set into the box and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
The coins of the Biblical Coin Series all feature a maximum mintage of just 1,499 coins. The individual COA included with purchase reflects your coin’s serial number in the series, which is also laser engraved on the outside edge of the coin’s rimless design. All silver coins for sale in this series have an antique finish for enhanced details for the intricate designs.
On the reverse of the 2016 2 oz Daniel in the Den of Lions Silver Biblical Coin Series you’ll find the image of Daniel as he stands amongst the bones of those who have perished before him in the lion’s den. AT the top is a single engraving that reads “Daniel in the Lion’s Den.”
Daniel was a cast into the lion’s den by jealous rivals who saw his quick rise to high office with his royal master Darius the Mede as a challenge to their position. Darious bowed to the pressure of Daniel’s jealous contemporaries, but Daniel was delivered from death by an angel sent by God, who found Daniel blameless before him.
The obverse of all Silver Biblical Series Coins from the Scottsdale Mint has the third-generation depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Designed by Raphael Maklouf in 1984, it depicts the Queen in a very regal stature with a tall, ornate crown, earrings, and a necklace around the base of her bust.
