Niue 2015 $8 Lunar Goat Gold Plated 5oz Silver Proof

I gave you a sneak peek of this coin a few weeks ago in this post. It has now be released in all it's glory and is easily the most impressive 2015 lunar goat design unveiled yet:
 
Niue 2015 $8 Lunar Goat Gold Plated 5oz Silver Proof
Downies, who commissioned the coin and started the series last year with the release of the 'Niue 2014 $8 Year Of The Horse 5oz Silver Proof Coin With Selective Gold Plating' provides the following description:
 
Sure to be one of the hottest 2015 Lunar New Year coins, this massive Year of the Goat tribute is struck from a whopping FIVE OUNCES of silver – and spans an imposing 65mm in diameter!
 
Certain to be sought after for the imposing dimensions, the exquisite High Relief Proof strike and the beauty of the precisely gold-plated reverse motif, the inevitably powerful wave of demand for this majestic legal tender $8 will in large part be driven by the success of its predecessor – the 2014 $8 Lunar Horse Gold-Plated 5oz Silver Proof. Undoubtedly a contender for ‘Coin of the Year’, the 500-coin mintage of the Year of the Horse Silver 5oz sold out at super speed.

As powerful, as eye-catching and as exclusive as its predecessor, with the mintage just 500 coins, there would seem no doubt that this stunning new release will march down the same path to success. Strike while the iron is hot!
 
  • An exquisite, imposing legal tender tribute to the Year of the Goat
  • Exclusive! Ensuring a sell-out, the mintage has been restricted to a mere 500!
  • Struck to immaculate Proof quality from a whopping FIVE OUNCES of 99.9% fine silver
  • Spans an imposing 65mm in diameter – and features precise selective gold-plating!
  • Beautifully presented within an impressive, high-gloss timber case
  • Accompanied by an individually serial-numbered Certificate of Authenticity
You can buy it from the Downies website for A$495. It's not a cheap coin, but with such a low mintage and impressive design I would be surprised if it doesn't sell out soon.

Nice coin. But it's just a shame certain numi dealers act as if they're doing the customer a favour instead of just selling them a nice coin. I'll save my dollars for bullion where I don't see the same kind of attitude. Bullion coins can be nice too.

WHAT DID THE FIRST CHRISTIANS BELIEVE? BY STEVE FINNELL

THE CHURCH OF CHRIST HAD ITS BEGINNING ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST 33 A.D.. WHAT BELIEFS AND ACTIONS DID THE THREE THOUSAND CONVERTS TO CHRIST HAVE IN COMMON? DID GOD APPROVE OF EVOLVING BELIEFS, DIFFERENT REQUIREMENTS FOR SALVATION? IF THAT WERE TRUE, THEN WOULD IT NOT BE FOUND IN THE NEW TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES?

Acts 2:41 So then, those who received his word were baptized; and there were added about three thousand souls. Acts 2:47....And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved.

All three thousand believed the apostle Peter's message and were baptized in water. Then they were added to the Lord's church by the Lord Himself. The Lord did not add the unsaved to His church. They had to believe and be baptized in water prior to being added to the body of Christ.

1. Acts 2:22 Men of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know---

All three thousand believed Jesus was a miracle worker.

2. Acts 2:31-32 he looked ahead and spoke of the resurrection of the Christ, that He was neither abandoned to Hades, nor did His flesh suffer decay. 32 This Jesus God raised up again, to which we are all witnesses.

All three thousand believed in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

3. Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ---this Jesus whom you crucified."

All three thousand believed that Jesus was Lord and Christ.

4. Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, "Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

All three thousand repented in order to have sins forgiven. (repentance meant that they made the commitment to turn from their unbelief and sinful lifestyle and turn toward God).

All three thousand were baptized in water in order to have their sins forgiven.

All three thousand received the indwelling gift of the Holy Spirit after they believed, repented, and were baptized in water.

5. Acts 2:40 And with many other words he solemnly testified and kept on exhorting them, "Be saved from this perverse generation!"

All three thousand were saved after they believed Peter's message: They believed, repented, confessed, and were baptized in water. (Mark 16:16, John 3:16, Acts 3:19, Acts 2:38, Romans 10:9-10, Acts 8:35-38) THEN THEY WERE ADDED TO THE LORD'S CHURCH! (Acts 2:47)

WHAT THINGS DID PETER NOT PREACH AND WHAT THINGS DID THE THREE THOUSAND NOT BELIEVE.

1.Peter did not preach that men were saved by grace alone.

2.Peter did not preach that men were saved by faith only

3.Peter did not preach that God had selected a few to be saved and that all others would go to hell.

4. Peter did not preach that water baptism was not essential to salvation.

5. Peter did not preach that Jesus was just one of many Saviors.

6. Peter did not preach that once you were saved, that you could continue in a sinful lifestyle and still be saved.

7. Peter did not preach that God did not have the power to give us an inerrant translation of the Scriptures.

8. Peter did not preach that God would provide hundreds or thousands of different Christian denominations, and that they would teach different ways of being saved.

9. Peter did NOT preach that you had to speak in tongues as evidence that you were saved.

AS BELIEVERS IN CHRIST, MEN SHOULD USE THE BIBLE AS THEIR GUIDE FOR SALVATION. Looking to man-made creed books, Bible commentaries, denominational statements of faith, and church catechisms, is looking in all the wrong places for the absolute truth!
