Although the Christmas season is a religious celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, it just wouldn’t feel like Christmas in the homes of millions in the Western world without a fir or pine tree decorated for the season. Though Christmas has become highly commercialized and tree sales are a major part of the season, the appearance of trees indoors to mark the holiday goes back at least 440 years! Right now, 1 oz Christmas Tree Copper Rounds are available to purchase online from JM Bullion.
- Arrives inside of a protective plastic flip, a tube of 20 rounds, or a Monster Box of 500 rounds!
- The perfect collectible item for the holiday season!
- Contains 1 AVDP oz of .999 pure copper.
- A decorated tree with presents beneath features on the obverse of the rounds.
- Snowflakes are shown on the reverse of the rounds.
Each of the 1 oz Christmas Tree Copper Rounds available to you here today comes with a satin frost to the elements and a carefully polished background surface. The combination of these two effects helps give the rounds a cameo-like visual appearance. Cameo products have strong, frosted elements overlaying deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
These copper rounds are each in brand-new condition. The Osborne Mint houses individual rounds inside of protective plastic flips, while multiples of 20 and 500 rounds are also available. Multiples of 20 ship inside of protective tubes, with multiples of 500 shipped in a mint-strapped cardboard box.
In the center of the obverse design field on the 1 oz Christmas Tree Copper Round is the image of a decorated Christmas tree. This evergreen has all the classical decorations from the star on the top and garland running the length of the tree to individual decorative balls. At its base, you will notice three wrapped presents. Inscriptions read “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,” with candy canes wrapped in holly on either side of the tree design.
The origin of the decorated Christmas tree as we know it today is associated with the Renaissance in Germany during the late 16th century. Protestant reformer Martin Luther is said to have added lighted candles to an evergreen tree during the Christmas season. A keystone sculpture from Alsace (now France, then Germany) dating to 1576 marks the first recorded Christmas tree.
The reverse side of Christmas Tree Copper Rounds comes with a shared design used by the Osborne Mint on all of its Christmas-themed copper rounds. Here, a selection of differently sized, shaped, and styled snowflakes falls across the design field.
