Christmas falls on December 25th each year on the modern Gregorian calendar. At its core, Christmas is a Christian celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. However, December 25th wasn’t known as the official date for Christmas until the early-to-mid 4th century. The Western Christian Church placed Christmas on this date, but some cultures and nations still celebrate Christmas on January 7th based upon the ancient Julian calendar instead.
The 1 oz Colorized Silver Merry Christmas Red Round features one of the most prominent colors of the Christmas season as its background visual. Red has become closely associated with the season, from twinkling lights and decorations on trees to the suit that Santa Claus wears. The question is, where did red come into the equation?
In Medieval Europe, Paradise plays were performed in towns for those who couldn’t read the Bible themselves. Pine trees adorned with red apples were used to represent the Garden of Eden and Adam’s downfall. Holly berries, also red and prominent at Christmas, are said to represent the blood of Jesus when he died on the cross.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Colorized Silver Merry Christmas Red Round is a background field featuring a vibrant red color. A frosty white features in the small décor elements of the design field, including the phrase “Merry Christmas” in the center. It is framed on all sides by small stars, leaves of holly, and wreathes.
The reverse of the Silver Merry Christmas Red Round has no colorization added, but retains its beautiful silver finish. The only engravings here are “One Ounce” in the center of the design field and “.999 Fine Silver” along the bottom.
