Fort Collins, Colorado, USA Temple

History

Built in an area originally zoned to support only homes and neighborhood centers that, act “as a focal point for neighborhood activity”* rezoning was one of the first stumbling blocks placed before the temple. On August 23, 2015, the temple and machinery were vandalized.** Building continued, blessing those in the neighborhood as it went. “It has been a blessing for our ward family to have this going up right in front of our eyes,” Kyle Cloverely said. “With every week that we are at church and with every activity we make reference to the temple being built.” Soon all were able to say, in conjunction with George F. Rhodes, chairman of the local coordinating committee, “We have a temple in Fort Collins. We are so grateful to Heavenly Father…”*** President Dieter F. Ucthdorf of the First Presidency, said, “During the very early years the original Fort Collins offered during uncertain times a place of refuge, a place of safety, and a good place for restoring their supplies and energy. Although a ‘Fort Collins’ is no longer needed in the traditional way, the temple is now there as a place of protection and a place of light and truth. It has the power of renewal, of strengthening, of refuge from the storm, and of safety for families and the whole community.”**** Fondly referred to as a “fortress of faith” the Fort Collins, Colorado temple, residing on Majestic Drive, was dedicated on October 16, 2016. This temple stands strong, ready to restore your supply of spiritual energy.

How Temple Coins are Made

Dave started creating jewelry using metals in 1992, ten years later he had worked with nearly every metal in the jewelry industry! Moving to Thailand, he spent the next nine years perfecting his skills with various metals, 3D models and 3D printers. He dreamed of producing something that would bring delight to purchasers and carry with it positive feelings that would touch the souls of those who owned them. In 2014 he was able to realize his dream. Returning to the US, he uses Lost-wax casting to create a metal master from brass alloy for each temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, depicting, in the highest degree of definition possible, a coin with a 3D image of a temple. The reverse of each coin is cast with the words “Stand ye in holy places.”

Purchase one or two of the temples that hold special meaning to you. Commemorate your visit to a temple by picking up the corresponding coin. Celebrate a milestone in a loved one’s life by gifting them a temple coin to inspire them. Collect them all or just a few. Some are cast in precious metals, making each coin an investment that will be a treasure in every sense of the word.
