Provo, Utah, USA Temple
The hill where Brigham Young University resides has been known as Temple Hill for many years. It is said President Brigham Young stated, “We have ascended to the summit of this beautiful hill and now you are standing on holy ground. The day will come when a magnificent temple will be erected here to our God and I want you to look and behold the scenic beauty of this wonderful valley.”* In the early 1960’s the First Presidency spoke with local stake presidents, telling them they hoped to build a temple in the area. After the meeting President Ben E. Lewis, one of those stake presidents, shared with President N. Eldon Tanner that some years before, a man named Leahy, a German immigrant, had approached him after having a dream. He owned land on Provo’s east bench and had a vivid dream in which he saw a temple on his property. He had offered the land to President Lewis for a temple. The land was purchased for BYU. On February 9, 1972 the Provo temple was dedicated, residing on Leahy’s land, fulfilling his dream. In Exodus we learn that the Lord went before His people in a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. The Provo temple is designed to bring this imagery to mind. President Gordon B. Hinckley, in October 1993 said, the Provo temple is the “busiest temple in the Church.”** Regardless of how many people pass through its walls, this temple is a haven of reverence, peace and tranquility. As was said in the dedicatory prayer, those who attend, “seek to be like thee [our Father]; we seek to pattern our lives after the life of thy Son; we desire righteousness for ourselves and our children and our children’s children; … we plead with thee to make us worthy to inherit … those blessings which grow out of the continuation of the family unit forever.”
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.”
