The obverse of this bar portrays a famous scene from the Bible, beautifully captured by Heidi Watsweet. Jesus travels to Jerusalem for Passover and finds the temple filled with money changers and dove vendors. "And making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and oxen. And he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. And he told those who sold the pigeons, "Take these things away; do not make my Father's house a house of trade." Jn 2:13-16
