Scottsdale Biblical Series Silver Coin | BOLD Precious Metals

Born in Strasbourg, France in 1832, Paul Gustave Louis Christophe Doré, almost immediately demonstrated advanced giftedness as an artist. By age 15, he was well on his way to a lifelong career as an illustrator, printmaker, and sculptor. His chosen medium was wood engraving, although his paintings brought high acclaim during his life, and continue to this day. Among his most well-known and celebrated works are his 241 wood engravings of many of the key events recorded in the Bible (1866).

The inspiration for Scottsdale Mint's Biblical coins series designs is drawn directly from Gustave Doré's Bible engravings. Scottsdale's creative team did not seek merely to copy Doré's originals to the coins. Rather, remaining true to the originals, they transformed each scene into a new medium of high-relief, antique-finish, silver coinage. Their work is nothing short of breathtaking!
