Coin Story

The account of Jacob wrestling with the angel is found in Genesis 32:22-32 and referenced elsewhere in Hosea 12:4. The account includes the renaming of Jacob as "Israel", literally "He who struggles with God." The account is also regularly described as Jacob wrestling with God.[1]

Jacob spent the night alone on a riverside. There, a mysterious being—considered to be an angel or God himself—wrestled with Jacob, even striking him painfully in the hollow of his thigh. Jacob asks the being his name, and while he doesn't receive an answer, he names the place where they wrestled Peniel or Penuel.[Genesis 32:29-30] The event occurs during Jacob's journey back to Canaan.


Obverse: Features the Raphael Maklouf likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II surrounded by the weight, purity and face value.
Reverse: Jesus is shown being pinned down as his hands and feet are nailed to the cross.
Edge: Laser-etched serial number, from 1 to 1499, which matches the serial number found on the included certificate of authenticity.

 The certificate of authenticity has an antique feel that coincides nicely with both the finish of the 2 oz coin and the design subject.
