Jerusalem in Hebrew means "City of Peace” and the symbol of the dove has a long history, dating from the story of Noah’s Ark (Genesis 8:11), with the dove which returned with an olive branch, signaling that the flood was ended and that humanity would have a new and better world. Ancient Roman catacombs have been found depicting the dove together with the word “peace”. The Talmud refers again to the flood, “The spirit of G-D hovered over the face of the water like a dove”; the New Testament speaks of the dove as representing the peace of the soul.
Medieval manuscripts, both Jewish and Christian, show Noah’s dove of peace and the symbol has continued until modern times.
Perhaps most famous is Pablo Picasso’s “La Colombe”, for the Paris World Peace Congress, in April 1949.
Since that time the dove has been widely used in peace movements worldwide. Therefore, it is fitting that the Holy Land Mint issue this Gold Bar depicting the universally beloved symbol of the “Dove of Peace” as its initial offering.
