Kirtland, Ohio, USA Temple


The first temple of modern times built by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Kirtland Temple, consisted of just a few rooms. The main floor was an assembly room, used for worship services among the saints and by other preachers prior to its dedication. The second floor, another assembly room, was used mainly for education or schooling in the scriptures. The third floor contained classrooms and offices. Dedicated in March 1836, the services were heralded by divine manifestations reminiscent of temples of Biblical times. Heavenly beings appeared, including the resurrected Jesus Christ.

Two years after its dedication, the Latter-day Saints were driven out of Kirtland and the temple was no longer a sacred building, ownership of the building changed many times over the intervening years. Currently the building is owned by the Community of Christ (previously known as the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints). The Community of Christ and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints work together to preserve the temple and its history and heritage. A Kirtland Temple coin can help connect you to the faithful followers of God in Biblical times as well as modern.

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.
