Do you have a coin? What does your coin say? It has a date!

Dates show our world history timeline. The method of our dating system is a chronological marker. The first and simplest method of absolute dating is using objects with dates inscribed on them. Coins are great examples because they are associated with historical events or documents! Coins are artifacts that give tangible evidence that something happened.

The Eisenhower coin says, "In God we trust"

Our numbering system show our dates are based on the birth of Jesus Christ.  (B.C) U.S. and Latin country coins are great examples of dates that everyone understands.  If we use a dating system based on the birth of Jesus, don’t you want to know more about Him?

Who is Jesus? What did Jesus teach? I like to look at Nicodemus from John 3:

Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.”

“How can a man be born when he is old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb to be born!”

Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’

Do you want to know more about Jesus? Let’s look at the book of John for the truth of Jesus and his teachings! Do you want to join me?

    • Hi Claudia,

      Each of the bible studies can be seen or downloaded. Here is a link to the first one. If you want the pdf, you can save that to your desktop and print it out or see it on this webpage.

    • If it’s a Canadian $100 gold coin, the face value of it is $100 CDN if you choose to spend it.What you’re loonikg for is it’s numismatic value, and that can vary based on the age, condition and rarity of the coin.What year was the coin minted? Has the coin ever been used? Was there any mistakes when the coin was minted that is, was it double-struck (struck twice)? Does Her Majesty face the wrong way compared to the regular issue? etcetera.Your best answers are not on the Web. A good coin dealer in your town can assay (figure out the value) of your coin and (probably) quote you a fair price.But if the Web way’s the only way for you, seek on Yahoo the following search terms 100 Canada gold coin Queen Elizabeth Silver Jubileeand ye shall find.

      Good luck,
