The First Epistle to the Corinthians marks the earliest known mention of what would become the Last Supper. These tales dictate through four canonical Gospels that the meal between Jesus and his disciples took place at the end of the week following the triumphant arrival of Jesus in the city of Jerusalem.
During that meal, Jesus sits down with all 12 of his disciples to break bread and share wine, a tradition upheld by many in the Christian faith today when they take communion at mass or church service. At dinner that night of the Last Supper, Jesus predicts each of his disciples will betray him, starting when Peter denies knowing Jesus the very next morning.
The Biblical Coin Series releases all ship inside of Bible-themed boxes from Scottsdale Mint that include a Certificate of Authenticity on the inside. Each coin has edge-lettering that denotes its individual serial number in the release.
On the reverse of the 2016 2 oz The Last Supper Silver Biblical Coin Series you’ll find the image of Jesus as he dines with his disciples. All 12 men are gathered around him in the ornate design, hanging on his every word as he speaks to his most devout followers. The engraving of “The Last Supper” is found at the bottom.
The obverse of all coins in the Biblical Series from Scottsdale Mint include the third-generation image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is captured in right-profile relief on all commonwealth coinage, and for this coin series the 1984 depiction created by Raphael Maklouf appears on the obverse of all the coins.
