The City of Nazareth is the largest city in Israel’s Northern District. Today, it is known as the “Arab capital of Israel” and has a population that is more than two-thirds Muslim with the remaining one-third of the population identifying as Christian. A place for Christian pilgrimage, the New Testament of the Bible identifies the city as the childhood home for Jesus Christ.
The city is so closely associated with Jesus that many verses from the Bible name Jesus as “Jesus of Nazareth.” Evidence of habitation in the city date back as far as 9,000 years, but perhaps the most popular time period for descriptions of the city comes from the Roman Period. This is when the city was identified in the Bible as the home of Mary and the place where Jesus was raised after Mary and Joseph returned following a trek to Bethlehem where Jesus was born.
The obverse side of 2019 1 oz Proof Silver Niue Footsteps of Jesus Nazareth Coins come with a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. In this right-profile bust, Her Majesty is shown wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara in a design that was used on British coins from 1998 to 2015, while many Commonwealth nations began using the design in 1999 and continue to do so to this day.
On the reverse face of the 2019 1 oz Proof Silver Niue Footsteps of Jesus Nazareth Coin is a depiction of a young Jesus Christ learning his father’s craft. Joseph, the man who stepped in to marry the Virgin Mary, was a carpenter by trade in Nazareth and took Mary to Bethlehem for the Roman census. The pair returned with the young Jesus to Nazareth where he served as an apprentice to his father before setting out on his ministry as a young man.
These 2019 1 oz Proof Silver Niue Footsteps of Jesus Nazareth Coins ship with a protective plastic capsule and are housed inside of a presentation box. The coins come with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity as well. The inset capsule visible on both sides of the coin features wood shavings from an olive tree in Nazareth.
