Baptism of Jesus is the first 2017 release, and 13th overall release, in the Biblical Series featuring iconic biblical scenes. Each of these 2 oz silver coins features an impressive high-relief, rimless design and a laser-etched serial number, from 1 to 1499, which matches the one printed on the CoA. With the mintage of 1499 pieces, the coin comes housed in a luxury presentation box reminiscent of the Bible.
The traditional obverse of a Niue coin showcases the effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II surrounded by the inscriptions of weight, purity and face value.
The reverse image features light descending from above, the Holy Spirit, onto Jesus as he is baptized in the river by John the Baptist. The Certificate of Authenticity lists Matthew 3:16-17 (NLT) which states: After his baptism, as Jesus came up out of the water, the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and settling on him. And a voice from heaven said, "This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy."
