On the reverse of 2019 Silver Crown of Thorns Biblical Coin is the image of Jesus. He is seated in the center with several Roman soldiers standing around him. This side bears a replica of artwork originally completed in the 1860s by Gustave Dore and once displayed in London. The design reflects the passages in Mark 15:16-19.
During his trial and execution by crucifixion, Jesus was mocked for his followers’ belief that he was the King of the Jews. Roman soldiers, as depicted on the reverse of this coin, brought him to the courtyard of the Governor’s palace and dressed him in purple robes. Once dressed, the soldiers wove a crown of thorns and forced it onto his head. They then proceeded to spit on him and kneel in mocking worship as they pronounced “Hail, King of the Jews.”
The obverse of 2019 2 oz Silver Crown of Thorns Biblical Coins includes an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is featured here in right-profile relief in a design from Raphael Maklouf that served as the official portrait of the Monarch on British coins from 1984 to 1997.
