On the obverse of 2021 Silver Jesus Praying in the Garden Biblical Series Coins is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. This portrait of Her Majesty was created in 1985 by Raphael Maklouf and is an ageless, timeless depiction of the Queen. The image shows Her Majesty in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem on her head.
The reverse field of 2021 2 oz Jesus Praying in the Garden Biblical Series Coins comes with a vision of the moments before Jesus is apprehended by the Romans. After the Last Supper, Jesus goes for a walk to pray and finds himself in the garden of Gethsemane. Accompanied by Peter, John, and James, Jesus takes a quiet moment to pray. While the apostles were meant to be watching out for Jesus, they fell asleep. As Jesus prayed, Judas led the Romans right to Jesus and he was apprehended.
