For many, the holiday season is significant for one reason: the birth of Jesus Christ. In this limited edition, one ounce silver round , you can preserve the reason for the season in an enduring precious metal – complete with a protective display capsule.
On the obverse side a holy scene is depicted: Mother Mary leaning over Christ's manger, one hand lifted with her palm facing the heavens. Behind them stands Joseph, carrying his shepherd's crook. All three figures – Jesus, Mary, and Joseph – have a clear halo of light around their heads, showing their divine relationship. The Star of Bethlehem glows on the left side of the round, and a palm tree can be seen in the background on the right, completing the robust nativity scene. This is an iconic scene of the Nativity, one of the most important events in Christianity.
The reverse side of the round is modestly bare except for a proclamation of its metal content and weight ("one troy ounce, .999 fine silver") and the year this round was minted (2022).
This commemorative silver round makes an ideal gift for someone who is just starting a silver collection as well as collectors of religious iconography. Investing in any precious metal is a way to convert liquid assets or paper cash into tangible value that will outlast most currencies due to the traditional value associated with it. Silver in particular has been popular lately due to economic instability and silver's increasing usage in a wide range of industries.
Give a gift of lasting value with this limited edition Christmas round!
While many coins are technically round, not all rounds are coins! As a collector, it’s important to understand the difference between coins and rounds. While the two share similarities, there are some key differences. This particular product is a round, not a coin, but people may still refer to rounds colloquially as coins. So you're likely to hear this round referred to as a "commemorative coin" or the "Night of Jesus' Birth Coin", but we try to avoid using "coin" when talking about rounds.
If you're curious about the difference between a coin and a round, here you go: first, and perhaps most important, coins are legal tender. This means that they were issued by a government body, carry an official mark and are considered to be currency. This means that coins have two values – one being the tradable value of the country's currency (such as a $1 dollar Loonie coin having the value of $1 CAN), and the other being the value of the coin's weight in precious metals. Rounds, by comparison, have only the value of their precious metal content. This is due to rounds being typically produced by private or non-governmental mints, perhaps as special edition souvenirs or commemorative collectibles, but mostly as a method of making precious metals into small, convenient shapes. Value-wise, rounds could essentially be considered to be bullion produced with a round shape.
Of course, particular rounds may have specific collectible value beyond their metal content (such as their artistry, rarity, and the mint that made them). In short, coins are legal currency, rounds aren’t. Both can contain valuable precious metals. Happy collecting!
