The Jesus Collection Coins | Gold & Silver | Scottsdale Mint 


Jesus of Nazareth, a first-century Jewish carpenter, was so revolutionary in his religious ideology that he radically altered the course of history. Instilling love and charity rather than competition and conquest, Jesus Christ provided a new framework for faith-based action and saved countless billions of souls well after his brief lifetime. Today, the teachings of Jesus form the foundation of the world’s largest religion: Christianity. To honor the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, Scottsdale Mint respectfully offers the Jesus Collection Coin Series.


What Is the Jesus Collection Coin Series?


The Jesus Collection Coin Series showcases the exquisite craftsmanship of Scottsdale Mint with a detailed image of Jesus. The collection includes a variety of coin sizes, metals, and finishes, ensuring that collectors and investors can acquire the perfect coin to fit their portfolios. What’s more, every coin in the Jesus Collection Coin Series is legal tender in Samoa.


The 2021 line of the Jesus Collection is called Alpha & Omega and takes inspiration from a prominent mosaic in the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis, one of the oldest and grandest cathedrals in the United States. In the image, Jesus Christ has a radiant halo, holds the eucharist, and is surrounded by the Greek symbols for Alpha and Omega. As the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet, alpha and omega are often used to describe Jesus — He is the beginning and the end of human life on Earth. The image is encircled by a Biblical reference to II Timothy 4:7-8: “I have fought a good fight, I have kept the faith.”


The 2021 release is titled “Christ The Light”,  inspired by John 1:4 which states  “In him was life, and the life was the light of men.”


Pictured on the Reverse side is Jesus, with his raised Blessing Hand gesture, with a sun halo of Light surrounding his head, standing in a Stained Glass window pane. To the side of him is struck the symbol Chi Rho, an early monogram for Christ. On the obverse is the Samoa coat of arms.


The opposite side of the ancient coins in the Samoan Jesus Collection Coin Series is struck with the Samoan coat of arms. The crest includes a shield containing the five stars of the Crux or Southern Cross, a constellation used in seafaring around Samoa, below a verdant green island with a coconut palm. Above the shield is a cross, and around the shield are the concentric circles of the world and the olive branches for peace. The national motto of Samoa, “Fa’avae i Le Atua Samoa” means “God be the Foundation of Samoa.”


What Currency is Used in Samoa?


Samoa, also called the Independent State of Samoa and Western Samoa, uses the Samoan tālā, abbreviated to the code WST or WS$. The term “tālā” is a transliteration of the English word “dollar,” just like the increments of the tālā, the sene, is a transliteration of “cent.” It is important to differentiate this Samoa currency from that of American Samoa, which is an unincorporated U.S. territory that uses the U.S. dollar.


Types of Jesus Collection Coins


Scottsdale Mint uses the very best minting techniques to offer a wide variety in its Samoan Jesus Collection Coin Series. The coins included in the collection are:


  • 1 troy ounce gold coin
  • 1/5 troy ounce gold coin
  • 1 troy ounce silver coin
  • 1 troy ounce silver and black rhodium coin
  • 1 troy ounce silver antique coin
  • 1/2 troy ounce silver coin
  • 1/2 troy ounce silver and black rhodium coin
  • 1/2 troy ounce silver antique coin


Future collections could include some or all of these variations as well as additional options, like colorized versions of the design.


What is the Coins for Charity Program?


To honor and adhere to the teachings of Jesus, Scottsdale Mint has created the Coins for Charity  program with its current line of gold and silver coins from the Jesus Collection. As Jesus worked to protect and elevate the weak and vulnerable, Scottsdale Mint will donate the entire profit of every sale of a Jesus Collection coin to a basket of ministries working to improve their local communities and protect the young and vulnerable.


One of our partners works with children with special needs in the Congo, where education services are woefully ill-equipped, resulting in tens of thousands of children who fail to engage with learning of any kind. Scottsdale Mint works with GlobalFingerpints and other charitable organizations to build and outfit a school in the village of Gemena. This is just one initiative of what will be many for the Jesus Collection Coin Series and other precious metal product launches in the future.


Why Should You Buy the Jesus Collection series of Coins?


Collectors and investors stand to benefit from acquiring coins from the Jesus Collection Coin Series. As is expected for Scottsdale Mint gold and silver coin pieces, the coins within the Jesus Collection Coin Series are exceedingly high-quality in their design and precious metal content. Collectors can look forward to future releases within this collection to acquire full sets of coins inspired by the majesty and compassion of Jesus of Nazareth.


Meanwhile, investors can acquire gold and silver coins as hedges against currency inflation. The fine precious metals used to create the Jesus Collection Coin Series are worth much more than the face value of the coin, and they gain and hold value almost regardless of economic activity. Thus, savvy investors place some of their wealth in silver and gold. These stunning precious metal coins are exciting and interesting additions to any portfolio.
