David vs. Goliath


This coin is part of series Biblical Stories



A new issue in this award winning series! This 14th issue is issued in PURE .999 silver. The new motive is David vs. Goliath depicting David throwing a black stone to Goliath.

Goliath of Gath (one of five city-states of the Philistines) was the Biblical warrior defeated by the young David in the Book of Samuel. Post-Classical Jewish traditions stressed his status as the representative of paganism, in contrast to David, the champion of the God of Israel. Christian tradition sees David's battle with Goliath the victory of God's king over the enemies of God's helpless people as a prefiguring of Jesus' victory over sin on the cross and the Church's victory over Satan.

The phrase "David and Goliath" (or "David versus Goliath") has taken on a more popular meaning, denoting an underdog situation, a contest where a smaller, weaker opponent faces a much bigger, stronger adversary.
