A 2018 Roaring Lion 1-ounce silver $2 bullion coin issued in the name
of Niue carries a design with a biblical connection.
The new $2 coin, an exclusive production being distributed through
SD Bullion, features a lion roaring furiously as he announces his
presence to the world on the reverse.
The Aleph Tav symbol underneath the beast’s feet reveals his
identity as the Lion of Judah.
During the 19th century, Freedom and Liberty
often took center stage on American money.
Also inside this issue, we look at a long-running series of
auction catalogs that set a high standard for competitors.
Microengraving, visible under magnification in the mane of the
roaring lion, reads: “And the Truth Shall Set You Free.” That is half
of the Bible verse at John 8:32.
The obverse carries the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth
II, along with the year of mintage and the legal tender value assigned
to this coin, $2.
The Roaring Lion coin weighs 1 ounce and measures 39 millimeters in diameter.
