Description

The Joy to World design for the Silver Shield series celebrates the joy of Christmas as embodied by that first moment together on the first Christmas. It celebrates Christmas as it was originally intended to be, a celebration of joy at the birth of Jesus, and the completion of that great family that shaped the world since then. The innocence of the infant Jesus who would one day redeem mankind, and the love, true and utter selflessness of his parents. This design reminds of us of that most powerful message.

The obverse depicts a smiling infant Jesus in the loving embrace of his parents on the day of his birth. His surroundings were humble, but the importance of that moment is celebrated every year and expressed perfectly in the phrase "Joy to the World". He brought joy to a world full of sadness and darkness. This isn't only a message of what He brought, but a command to do likewise. The very spirit of this annual celebration was joy long before the commercialization of the holiday season. Mary and Joseph's faces are clearly full of joy and love, and their cloaks serve to remind us that not only was Jesus born in a lowly stable, but also in the cold of night. That cold serves as a reminder, that even though we are to be joyful, it will not be easy. There will suffering.

The reverse shows the revised Silver Shield logo with the trivium in the centre encircled by the words "Silver Shield 1 Avdp ounce 2015 999 Pure Cu" surrounded by 47 bullets.

This copper round is made from 1 oz of 999 copper and makes a perfect gift.

In multiples of 20 these coins will be shipped in a plastic tube.
