2016 Niue 2 Dollar 1-oz Silver Approach of the Wise Men Proof
A Gift in Grand Tradition of the Magi!
Christmas and gift-giving go hand-in-hand -- a tradition that can be traced all the way back to the birth of Jesus Christ himself as told in the Gospel of Matthew. When Jesus was born, several wise men came "from the east" to worship him and bear gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. While Matthew doesn't mention how many wise men there were, it's commonly accepted that each gift belonged to one of the men, equaling three. However, in Eastern Christianity, the Magi includes twelve wise men! Whatever the number, the tradition of giving gifts in celebration and reverence stuck for millennia afterwards.
That's why this beautifully detailed 2016 Niue 2 Dollar 1-oz. Silver Approach of the Wise Men Proof makes such a meaningful gift. First, the coin's reverse depicts the Three Wise Men of the Magi, following an ornate, handmade silver star filigree crafted in the coin's opening. The other side of the coin shows a profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II under radial lines emanating from the star. Minted in 99.9% pure silver, your coin is legal-tender two dollars for the island nation of Niue -- but it's so beautiful, you won't want to spend it on your vacation! GovMint.com has secured a number of these proofs from a limited mintage of 1,500. Order now to have it under the tree for family, for friends, even for yourself!
