Samson is famed for his superhuman strength, the source of which is rumored to be his long hair. He is the last of the Judges of Ancient Israel and his power may lie in his hair, but it was given to him by God as a sign of the power of the Spirit of the Lord. Samson was given the ability to slay a lion, which he did with his bare hands, as a result of God’s power.
On the reverse of 2019 2 oz Silver Samson Slays the Lion Biblical Coins is the image of Samson on the back of the lion as he tries to kill the beast. In the Bible, it is told that Samson tore the lion apart by first ripping its head in two at the jaw. Other impressive feats completed by Samson include defeating an entire Philistine army with only a donkey’s jaw bone as his weapon.
The obverse of 2019 Silver Samson Slays the Lion Biblical Coins contains the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the third-generation effigy of Her Majesty created in 1984 by Raphael Maklouf and featured on British coinage through 1997.
