The Silver Biblical Coin Series is produced at the Scottsdale Mint on behalf of the island nation of Niue. The series offers six new designs per date mark and each image on the reverse is based on a work of art from Gustave Dore. In 1866, he unveiled his illustrations for the Bible series, a collection of 241 wood-engravings that would later go on display in 1867 in London.
