Dr Garry Whilhelm Denke, Sr (b. April 19, 1622; d. February 19, 1699) was a German historian, antiquarian and dentist. He was born in Baden, trained at Schwarzwald School, Black Forest, in metal and wood dentistry. Dr. Denke is best known for his Stonehenge Heelstone flying eagle 1656 hollow stem auger core of Cartridge brass (70% Cu; 30% Zn) and Live oak.
After serving in the Thirty Years' War, he collected South Namur Waulsort and South Wales Coalfield white stone (Carboniferous) and coal stone from Stonehenge. Devoutly Catholic, Dr. Denke set out for Jamestown in the year 1666, was German Church historian and made Doctor by Sir William Berkeley governor dentist. He performed Appomattox Indian dentistry.
In 1676 Virginia Civil War, Dr. Denke opossumed Bacon's Rebellion and settled at Hell's Gate, Brazos River South Wall, Great Kingdom of the Tejas, Caddo confederacy. The Doctor's elder Waulsort and Wales white stone collection, his crude biology (paleontology) and hollow stem auger core drill are housed at The Barn, on Archer and Baylor County line, State of Texas.

Book of Ezekiel, Daniel, and Revelation scholars claim the seven seals are the seven Phocaea (Ionia) ~600 BC produced electrum stater seals located along the bottom of Scroll Trench, a 7th-6th century BC earthwork at Stonehenge. Also called the Arc Trench seven seals, the first (1st) seal was found on May 19, 1923 by Robert Newall, an Office of Works draughtsman. Six (6) seals remain covered by soil in between the Heelstone and the elder encircling Heelstone Ditch. According to these Ezekiel, Daniel, and Revelation scholars the Son of man acquired the seven seals (Greek: phoce; Family: Phocidae) from what is now Western Turkey. After their sealing, the Books of Ezekiel and Daniel were written - type parlant apocalyptic Book of Revelation following.
British Museum - Electrum stater with a seal (http://www.britishmuseum.org/explore/highlights/highlight_objects/cm/e/electrum_stater_with_a_seal.aspx)
The first (1st) seal was found at the intersection of Scroll Trench and elder Heelstone Ditch (where it once was). Located 2 ft (0.61m) East of Lt-Col. William Hawley's May 19, 1923 unexcavated C6 right-angled triangle hypotenuse center at a depth of 4.5 ft (1.37m) below ground level (GL), this westernmost first (1st) seal is now in The British Museum. An EM (electromagnetic conductivity) suvey of the remaining six (6) seals show them distributed at intervals of one seal per cubit (1.5 ft, 0.46m) as measured from the horizontal surface plane above. These seals progressively deepen to the East downward to seven artifacts encased by EM detected and core sampled bronze covered wood below Heelstone's sculptured man's face (Ez. 1:10, 10:14; Rev. 4:7).
To the right hand of him (the man's face) that sits on the throne (Ez. 1:26) seven seals were sealed (Rev. 5:1), each being separate and individually positioned at right-angled triangle depth intervals, their locations more particularly described as follows:
BEGINNING at the first (1st) Phocaea (Ionia) ~600 BC produced electrum stater seal located along the bottom of Arc Trench, a 7th-6th century BC earthwork at Stonehenge, said first (1st) seal found by Robert Newall on May 19, 1923 at the intersection of Scroll Trench and the elder Heelstone Ditch (where it once was), and said first (1st) seal located 2 ft (0.61m) East of Lt-Col. William Hawley's 19th May 1923 unexcavated C6 right-angled triangle hypotenuse center at a depth of 4.5 ft (1.37m) below ground level (GL) surface;
THENCE East 1.5ft (0.46m) down Arc Trench to EM detected second (2nd) sealed seal;
THENCE East 1.5 ft (0.46m) down Scroll Trench to EM detected third (3rd) sealed seal;
THENCE East 2 ft (0.61m)) down Arc Trench to EM detected fourth (4th) sealed seal;
THENCE East 2 ft (0.61m) down Scroll Trench to EM detected fifth (5th) sealed seal;
THENCE East 2.5 ft (0.76m) down Arc Trench to EM detected sixth (6th) sealed seal;

Why are you linking a few coins with pictures of a seal on them to biblical passages?
The seal denoted the city where they were made, The Greek word for seal is phoce and this coin is therefore usually attributed to the Greek city of Phocaea, in Ionia.
you can buy them on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/greek-Electrum-stater-gold-plated-silver-/390331641419?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5ae1942e4b#ht_1311wt_752
although the one with the seal on is quite rare, as I understand it there are only 6 known examples, so where you get 7 from i've no idea.

Stonehenge Armageddon Prospect
Scroll Trench, also called Arc Trench, is a 25 ft (7.6m) long by 9 ft (2.7m) wide curved cutting into the Late Cretaceous (Santonian Age) Seaford Chalk formation at Stonehenge in England. Located within the (southern) Avenue, it begins as a shallow disturbance over Stonehole B (WA 3606) increasing in depth east-northeast as it scrolls-arcs to the East deeper, its final depth being unknown. This broad feature cuts perpendicular through Heelstone Ditch whose segment is missing there in its curved path towards Stonehole 96 (WA 163), the Heelstone. It is exceedingly deep (6 ft, 1.8m) where it crosses just East passed the missing segment of Heelstone Ditch (average depth: 4 ft, 1.2m). Entirely cut away is Heelstone Ditch's lower-half fill of Early Carboniferous (Arundian Age) High Tor Limestone and its upper-half fill of silted-in periglacial cryoturbated chalk. Scroll Trench's backfill soil is a mixture of both lithologies and stone chips of all Stonehenge period varieties, indicating it postdates their occurrences. Stratigraphic sequence runs Scroll Trench - Stonehole 97 - Heelstone Ditch - (southern) Avenue Bank, from most recent to earliest. Lt-Col William Hawley found Scroll Trench in his "Excavations at Stonehenge during the season of 1923";
"I did not follow the course of it up to the Helestone, as I should like to have done, for I avoided going nearer to it than 10 ft., fearing to disturb its stability (the depth being unknown)" - "A satisfactory examination would not be possible without permission and assistance from the Office of Works." (page 25)
Scroll Trench, eastward from Heelstone Ditch to the Heelstone, remains unexcavated to this day. The feature was dated by Office of Works' draughtsman Robert Newall as 7th-6th century BC, with an electrum stater coin. Hawley sought permission to fully examine it satisfactorily, and he sought assistance in stabilising Heelstone while investigating it, but neither were granted. Office of Works, now Department for Culture, Media and Sport (Secretary): Jeremy Hunt; National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty (Board of Trustees): Simon Jenkins, Sir Laurie Magnus Bt, Patrick Casement, Sir Crispin Davis, Richard Farrant, Sir Edward Greenwell, Charles Gurassa, Nichola Johnson, Sir Mark Jones, Adrian Phillips, Michael Quicke, Mary Villiers; Historic Building and Monuments Commission for England (Chair): Baroness Kay Andrews; (Commissioners): Lynda Addison, Maria Adebowale, Joyce Bridges, Manish Chande, Sir Barry Cunliffe, David Fursdon, Ronald Hutton, Jane Kennedy, John Walker, Elizabeth Williamson; (Chief Executive): Simon Thurley; (Executive Directors): Mark Pemberton, Edward Impey, Deborah Lamb, Keith Harrison; not interested in obtaining a satisfactory examination.

Way to not answer the Vuall's question, Garry Denke.

Archaeological quartz artifacts and naturally fractured quartz fragments occur in a variety of cultural and geological contexts worldwide. For dating such objects we have developed the new Quartz Hydration Dating (QHD) technique. It relies on the phenomenon of water diffusion into quartz leading to the formation of a hydration layer that can be measured by a hydrogen profiling technique, and diffusivity data connecting the layer thickness with the hydration time. We have obtained such data by induced-hydration experiments in the temperature range 60 to 200 °C and derived a general equation for calculating diffusion coefficients which was validated by results from dated artifacts. The main factors influencing the diffusivity are temperature, the crystallographic orientation, measured as the angle between surface of hydration and crystal c-axis, and initial H content of the quartz. The experimental results are discussed in the frame of a diffusion-reaction model from the literature. The time range of QHD is 100 ya to over 100K ya. The error of age determination is 35%, but may be reduced to 20% by controlling for material variability. QHD is applicable to single-crystal specimens and aggregates of single crystals. Apart from its application to archaeology and geology, the technique is suited for detecting fakes.
