More than 2,000 years ago, a young husband and wife huddled in a humble stable and prepared to welcome a child into the world. Born in a time of darkness, this child was destined to become the Light of the World and the savior of all humankind.
The birth of Jesus Christ forever changed the world. Each year, at Christmas, we are called to reflect on His life and contemplate His sacred sacrifice. The story of Jesus' humble birth reminds us that He came not to serve the interests of the privileged or the powerful, but so that all persons might experience eternal life.
The unforgettable story of the birth of Jesus Christ is celebrated in this magnificent silver coin. The obverse recreates the traditional manger scene, depicting Mary and Joseph gazing intently at the Holy Child Jesus. Inscribed in bolded characters on the reverse is the message: "Christ: The True Meaning of Christmas."
Minted in a proprietary brass alloy, this coin is then given an antique bronze finish. It comes packaged in a polybag with a header card.
