The Benjamin Mint, famous for their commemorative plates of motor racing drivers, western movie stars, and WWII fighter planes, will move to religious plates for Easter. In a recent announcement, the company said that they will begin selling authentic "autographed" collectable plates from Jesus, his apostles, and some Old Testament Prophets.
The plate from Noah, for example, is autographed with the message "Keep your head above water in these tough economic times" and is signed by the prophet of the flood himself.
When asked how they obtained the autographs, company spokesman Terrence Heinline said that "everyone was willing to help us out as long as we agreed to send a part of the proceeds to their favorite charity. A portion of the sale of Adam and Eve plates, for example, will go to help the un-unionized fruit pickers to pay medical expenses.
Each plate will be numbered for authenticity and supplies are limited, so the company suggest that interested buyers act early.
