Burning Bush Gold Proof Coin

The 9th Coin in the "Biblical Art" Series

While Moses the shepherd was tending his sheep in the desert, he beheld a bush that was burning without being consumed. Out of this bush, God appeared to Moses and spoke to him of the suffering of the Children of Israel who were enslaved in Egypt.
