Samson has often been compared by modern scholars to other folk heroes with superhuman strength, such as Enkidu of the Sumerian culture and Heracles from Greek mythology. Samson was the last of the judges of the Ancient Israelites and his immense strength was said to flow from his hair. That strength is said to have allowed him to kill a lion with his bare hands and defeat an entire army of Philistines with the jawbone of a donkey.

When a woman named Delilah comes into the picture, Samson falls in love with her. However, she was sent by the Philistines to entice him and eventually betray him. While he slept, she cut his hair and robbed him of his strength. Captured by the Philistines, his eyes were gouged out and he was forced to churn a mill for the Philistines in Gaza.

The obverse side of 2021 2 oz Silver Death of Samson Biblical Series Coins features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. In this right-profile relief, Her Majesty is shown wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head. This design was created in 1985 by Raphael Maklouf and featured on British coins through 1997.

On the reverse field of the 2021 Silver Death of Samson Biblical Series Coin is a depiction of Samson in the final moments of his life. Robbed of his superhuman strength and blind, Samson was dragged into the temple of Dagon by the Philistine leaders. Some 3,000 people gathered to see him mocked as the once-mighty Samson. However, while in prison his hair had regrown. Chained to the columns of the temple, Samson prayed to God for the return of his strength. God heard his prayers and granted him his former strength. Samson pushed mightily to collapse the columns, bringing down the entire temple on himself and the 3,000 Philistines.

These 2021 2 oz Silver Death of Samson Biblical Series Coins are available with Biblical-themed presentation boxes that include a Certificate of Authenticity from the mint. Each silver coin has a rimless blank, high-relief strike, and an antique polish. The individual serial number on the coin is laser-etched on the edge.
