Please bear in mind that these rounds do not actually have a black background. The background is a standard silver, but appears darker in these photos as a result of shadows and lighting.
There are few periods of the year that are more joyous and relaxing than the Christmas season. As the Western calendar winds to a close in December, Christians and non-Christians alike pause to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ with the observance of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Today, you have the opportunity to buy 1 oz Silver 2021 Merry Christmas Rounds online at Provident Metals.
The birth of Jesus Christ is one of the more hotly debated historical moments. There is no accurate record of the exact date of his birth, with the calendars used in the ancient era not aligned in the same manner that modern calendars are. However, Western Christianity has observed the birth of Christ as Christmas Day on December 25th for centuries.
Obverse design elements on the 1 oz Silver Merry Christmas Rounds include a portrait of Santa Claus. In the 19th century, Santa Claus became more closely associated with the Christmas holiday as a twist on the 4th century Greek Bishop Saint Nicholas. It was at this time that the modern image of Santa Claus emerged as an older man with a portly frame, white hair, and a white beard. In this three-quarter right-profile portrait, Santa is grinning at you with his flowing beard and snowflakes in the background. There is an inscription on this face of MERRY CHRISTMAS.
For the reverse design of Silver 2021 Merry Christmas Rounds, the Golden State Mint depicts a variety of different snowflakes. In real life, snowflakes come in a variety of sizes and shapes, with no two snowflakes being exactly the same. This side has various shapes and sizes of snowflakes falling through the field with a ribbon at the center that has 2021 inscribed in it. The GSM logo is at the bottom of the design field, with 1 OZ SILVER .999 FINE inscribed at the top of the design field.
Western Christian churches and most Eastern Christian churches actually observe Christmas and the birth of Christ on different dates. The Western world and some Eastern Christian churches celebrate on December 25th, while the majority of Eastern Christian churches and Orthodox Christian churches observe the holiday on January 7th.
1 oz Silver 2021 Merry Christmas Rounds from Golden State Mint (GSM) are available to you with proof-like visuals that include frosted designs and mirror-like fields. Each one comes in an individual protective plastic flip.
