Garden of Eden
The Garden of Eden or Paradise, is the biblical "garden of God", described most notably in the Book of Genesis chapters 2 and 3, and also in the Book of Ezekiel. Genesis 13:10 refers to the "garden of God" (not called Eden by name), and the "trees of the garden" are mentioned in Ezekiel 31. The Book of Zechariah and the Book of Psalms also refer to trees and water in relation to the temple without explicitly mentioning Eden. Traditionally, scholars favored deriving the name "Eden" from the Akkadian edinnu, derived from a Sumerian word edin meaning "plain" or "steppe". Chaim Cohen, however, writes that Eden is more closely related to an Aramaic root word meaning "fruitful, well-watered". Another interpretation associates the name "Eden" with a Hebrew word for "pleasure"; thus the Douay-Rheims Bible in Genesis 2:8 has the wording "And the Lord God had planted a paradise of pleasure" (rather than "a garden in Eden"). The Hebrew term is translated "pleasure" in Sarah's secret saying in Genesis. 


The reverse of the coins features the image of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden realized with high reliefs and artistic skills. On the bottom of the reverse, the inscription: “GARDEN OF EDEN” – the name of the coin, “2019” – the year of issue and “5 OZ .999 AG” – the weight of the oin and the purity of the Silver. The obverse of the coin features the Coat of Arms of Benin and the inscriptions: “REPUBLIQUE DU BENIN” – the issuing country and “5000 FRANCS CFA” – the face value.
