Artist’s Edition

This page last updated on 2015-06-05

Coin Name :     23rd Psalm

Edition Name:     Consider The Ravens

Limited Edition – This edition will never again be produced

Years Minted

2014 – 50 coins

The colors on this coin are meant to evoke a long winter. There are several interpretations of the color scheme, but one is that we should remember those individuals who seem to have been forsaken by God, those who seem to live lives of constant winter in which spring never arrives. The biblical passage, Luke 12:24, inspired the edition name:

Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them.

Perhaps it would be fair to say that this edition questions whether God truly feeds all of the ravens. History and personal observation seems to imply otherwise.

Text of the advertisement:

*** Artist’s Edition ***
*** Only 50 made and they will never again be minted! ***

This coin is 2.5 inches in diameter (64 mm), which is huge and will fill your palm unlike any other geocoin. It has a shiny nickel finish.

The 12 circles around the edge, on the tree side, represent the passage of time, such as the 12 hours on a clock or the twelve months in a year. The flowers all come from the holy land and are mentioned in the bible. They are, starting at the top and moving clockwise:

Rose of Sharon

Crocus

Crown Daisy

Garlic

Almond

Black Mustard

Yellow Broom

Coriander

Flax

Fennel

Star of Bethlehem
Rock Rose

This picture was not used for the actual advertisement because it was far too morose and too low-resolution. However, this picture best captures the idea that God seem to forsake some individuals even though the bible promises that this is not the case.
