Description: Ex CNG Electronic Auction 425 (25 July 2018), lot 804 (unsold on an estimate $100) with tag Thomason Medallic Bible Series. Noah Sacrificing After the Flood. By Sir Edward Thomasen, Birmingham. EF, some light erosion on obverse. The original Thomason Medallic Bible Series was a set of sixty medals struck in 1830 that captured the essence of the entire Holy Bible in medallic art. The obverse designs were inspired by the works of well-known Renaissance artists and executed by several different engravers(all unnamed on the medals). The reverse of each medal contained a dense text quotation or explanation describing the topic of each medal. The 1830 set was produced in Birmingham, England by Sir Edward Thomason, who felt divinely inspired to promote the glory of God by impressing the Word of God upon gold, silver and other indestructible metals. Because of the extreme size and weight of this medal, I am unable to ship this medal outside of the US at normal airmail rates....please email for rates.
