The Silver Niue Biblical Series is the work of Scottsdale Mint. The coins in this series feature designs based on the collective Biblical works of Gustave Dore. Mr. Dore was a French artist, printmaker, and illustrator who started work in 1843 on a series of 241 wood engravings for a new edition of the French-language Vulgate Bible. In total, his wood engravings captured 139 scenes from the Old Testament and 81 from the New Testament.
The obverse of the 2021 Silver Transfiguration of Jesus Biblical Coin comes with a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief in a 1985 design from Raphael Maklouf. Used only from 1985 to 1997, this was the second-shortest-lived portrait of the Queen on British coinage.
On the reverse side of 2021 2 oz Silver Transfiguration of Jesus Coins, you will find a depiction of Jesus as he is enveloped in radiant rays of light. According to several gospels, Jesus was praying on a mountaintop with Peter, James, and John when he was surrounded by bright light and began to shine. In this moment, the figures of Moses and Elijah appeared alongside him and Jesus spoke to both men.
