Reported in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke, Jesus is crossing the Sea of Galilee in a boat with his disciples when a tremendous storm whips up the waters of the sea. As waves break over the bow and sides of the boat, his disciples besiege him, “teacher, don’t you care if we drown?” Jesus rose to his feet and said to the wind and waves, “Quiet! Be Still.”
The reverse side of the 2017 2 oz Jesus Calms the Sea Silver Biblical Coin depicts the moment Jesus rises from his slumber to calms the storms on the sea and return calm to the waters of the Sea of Galilee. His feat shocks the disciples, leaving many to ask “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!?
On the obverse of each coin in the Biblical Coin Series from Scottsdale Mint you’ll find a right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s effigy has been updated at periods throughout her reign as Queen of England, with this third-generation profile created in 1984 by Raphael Maklouf for use on circulation and bullion coinage. This image was last issued on circulation coinage in 1997.
