As you can see from the picture above, the front side presents the Ten Commandments. The scripture that runs around the outer edge of this side is James 2:10, "For whoever shall keep the whole Law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all."
The reverse side has a short and simple gospel message. It reads, "You have to face a Holy God on Judgment Day. He sees lust as adultery (Matt. 5:28) and hatred as murder (1 John 3:15). Will you be guilty? Jesus took your punishment on the cross, and rose again defeating death, to save you from Hell. Repent (Luke 13:5) and trust in Him today." An evangelistic website where the unbeliever can learn more is clearly referenced toward the bottom of the Gospel message -- needGod.com. And the scripture that runs around the outer edge of this side is John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
"I'm in the military, and I find the Ten Commandments coins to be very useful and practical. Commonly, service members receive coins throughout their military career to recognize their specific achievements. The initial reaction from receiving coins is positive. I encourage other Christians in the Department of Defense to apply this technique as well." Josh
Easy to use and Effective Review by Andy P
I thank God for the Ministry He has empowered here at Livings Waters, these Ten Commandment Coins are one of my favorite tracts to use!!! I have placed/given over 100 Ten Commandment Coins in the past 2 years, the rate at which they are picked up by people is very high. I have placed some, walked away from them... and within 15 Minutes one had been moved and I am assuming read too. Some were gone completely from the places I placed them as well. Even after praying to the Lord to use them mightily and that they wouldn't be thrown down a drain if someone didn't want it, I have witnessed that these coins ARE effective! Keep it up Living Waters with making this Tract Please, all for His Glory. Thank you for this Tract! - Andy P (Posted on 9/10/2016)
Great Evangelistic Tool Review by Hilary
It has always been difficult for me to approach people in a "cold call" about the Gospel. In other words, I have found that talking to people while I am out and about is intimidating. I took Ray's cue. I ask people if they would like a coin with the Ten Commandments on it. If they say no, their heart is closed. If they say yes, I offer it and ask if it's ok to tell them why I am giving it to them. More often than not, if they say yes, I can give them a quick run down of the Gospel and refer them to the web site on the back of the coin. The last time I did this, I encountered a gentleman who admitted he was back slidden. I told him I would pray for him and that God wanted him back. He held up the coin and said, "I think He's telling me something."

Great with young people Review by Alicia
The coins look great and if you leave one on the floor or other places they will disappear quickly. They are also popular with young people who don't like to read paper tracts! Please don't discontinue them! Thank you team God bless! (Posted on 4/22/2016)
The whole world is our mission field Review by Michael
For all of those brothers and sisters who represent livingwaters.com, I want to share some encouragement and thanks (to God first but also to His servants). Today is National Thank a Police Office Day (Sept. 9th, 2015). Our local police department in Pflugerville, TX was having an open house where you could go inside a jail cell, pet police dogs, see drug displays, etc. I went with my wife and daughter and we brought our bag of Ten Commandments coins with us and handed them out to as many police officers and support staff as we ran across. When we would hand it to them, we would say "This is a small token of thanks for all those who are faithfully upholding the law. This coin has a message of God's Law on the front and God's grace on the back. Thanks for what you are doing for our community." We were able to give away 35 coins - including one to the Chief of Police. Not a single person refused the coin and all received it graciously - most with a handshake and a smile. We gave away about 12 more later in the day as well. (Please help me pray for each person who received a coin today). By the grace of God (and with the assistance of these coins), I have been able to be more bold in the way I share my faith on other occasions as well. God is bringing me more and more joy in evangelism - I know it won't always be easy, but I praise Jesus for how many seeds were scattered today! I love and thank you brothers and sisters for your obedience to God and work for His kingdom. As an aside, for those who are "thrifty" like me, I find the best way to buy these is in sets of 5 bags (50 coins in each bag) which will fit into a USPS Priority Mail Small Flat Rate Box for $6.95. This seems to be the most inexpensive option if you don't want to buy 60 bags of 50 coins all at once. The flat rate box showed up within a few days after I ordered them. These coins are definitely worth the ~19cents per coin (shipping included). Only God knows how many He will draw into His kingdom through these tools - I pray that you who read this will receive the joy of giving these away as well. All glory to God! (Posted on 9/19/2015)
People love metal Review by AARON
People love a coin over paper any day of the week. We use the pennies for kids and the Ten Commandment coins for adults. They love them and ask for more. Sometimes I have found it difficult to witness to people because they keep staring at the coin instead of looking at me and listening to what I have to tell them. I almost feel like giving the coin last but then it wouldn't be an icebreaker. Then others will put it in their wallet for a good luck charm or something not understanding that you have just went through the Law being a mirror and a schoolmaster. I still think these are my favorite by far and hopefully they will take them out of their wallet and read them for their intended purpose. Luckily I have the Ten Commandments memorized because I cannot read them on there. Maybe Ray could make a one the size of a frisbee for older people. (Posted on 8/27/2015)
these are great! Review by brotherpaul
these are great! shiny enough to capture the eye, and weather-proof in rain or snow! I explained the gospel to a maintenance man who saw a bag on my desk, how one side has Law showing we are sinners, and other side of the coin has grace, how Christ took the punishment for our sins so we can live! And they are always picked up in places I leave them! Very effective! I agree a Spanish version would be good also. (Posted on 1/19/2015)
These are awesome! Review by Homestar316
These are awesome! I love bike riding so whenever I see that I'm about to pass someone, I drop one near them! I also do so when I'm driving :) I role down my window and toss them to people on crosswalks, waiting on the bus stops, etc. We as believers have to do all that we can to get the Gospel out before that great day of our Lords second coming! I know I'll be ordering more soon. God Bless! (Posted on 1/19/2015)
Inexpensive tool for sharing the Gospel. Review by WAGriswold
Inexpensive tool for sharing the Gospel. These coins can be used in a variety of ways, such as an ice breaker, to leave on a park bench or at a bus stop, include with change dropped in a tip jar or left with a table tip, or to personally hand to the recipient when making a Gospel presentation. Give them to your evangelism class before leaving for the mall! (Posted on 1/19/2015)
