St. George, Utah, USA Temple
The St. George temple was greatly anticipated by the Saints. They did, however, express concern about the location as it was too boggy. President Brigham Young stood firm, stating, “We cannot move the foundation. This spot was dedicated by the Nephites. They could not build [the temple], but we can and will build it for them.” Announced November 9, 1871 ground was broken that very day! So great was the desire to have a temple that parts of it were dedicated on January 1, 1877 so ordinance work could begin. April 6, 1877 the complete building was dedicated and General Conference was opened in the temple that morning! The St. George Temple was the only one to be completed during President Brigham Young’s thirty-year time as prophet. This is the first temple where the complete endowment ceremony was performed on behalf of deceased ancestors. Several of America’s Founding Fathers visited Wilford Woodruff in the St. George Temple, “demanding” that their endowment work be completed (they had been baptized previously). Wilford Woodruff saw to it that their ordinance work was soon completed. This temple knows how to honor those who lived in ages past.
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.”
