While the backend of the calendar year in the United States is filled with national holidays and other cultural celebrations, from Labor Day and Halloween to Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, and Christmas, the frontend of the calendar year is a little less congested when it comes to holidays.

St. Patrick’s Day is a celebration of the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick. The holiday itself is rooted in the celebration of the arrival of Christianity in Ireland and honors St. Patrick, the man credited with helping Christianity gain a foothold on the isle. It is celebrated each year on March 17th, the accepted day of death for St. Patrick. Though it is a religious and cultural celebration that is a national, public holiday in Ireland, it is also one of the most widespread cultural celebrations in the world. Each year, there are significant celebrations on St. Patrick’s Day in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Argentina, and other nations with a large Irish diaspora from centuries past.
On the obverse of the St. Patrick’s Day Silver Round is a depiction of a three-leaf clover with several symbols of Ireland and the celebration. The most prominent of these is the pious image of St. Patrick. Other details that represent the Emerald Isle within the design include the Harp of Ireland.
The reverse side of 1 oz St. Patrick’s Day Silver Rounds features a vision of the Emerald Isle. The island is shown here with four shields and four names. These shields and names represent the four historic provinces of Ireland. Though the provinces themselves play no major role in the modern Irish government, each is still an important symbol to the people residing in these regions. Each province has several counties. In Ulster province in the north, six of the nine counties make up Northern Ireland, while the other three are part of the Republic of Ireland.
