There is no special meaning of the number 12 in The Bible, but you may discover for yourself its significance from the 162 odd verses in the Bible with 12 in them.

Suffice to say that there are 12 tribes of Israel, named after the 12 sons of Jacob (who became Israel), and there are 12 disciples of Jesus.

Another Answer:

In Biblical Numerology, the number 12 represents 'organizational beginnings.' Consider the 12 months of the year, the 12 tribes of Israel, the 12 Apostles, etc. Multiples are also considered as 360 days in the Hebrew calendar (30 x 12) or the 144,000 end-time group saved (12x12x1000).
