Hanukkah is also called the "Festival of Lights," and these days celebrate the victory over darkness. Traditionally, the celebration falls in November or December. For eight days, it is customary to light Hanukkah candles to commemorate the miracle. In the II century BC, there were persecutions of the Jewish religion. It was forbidden to study the Torah, observe traditions, and conduct temple services. Hanukkah is dedicated to the purification of the temple and the resumption of service by the Maccabees.
According to the legend, the Greeks seized the temple and desecrated it. The service was interrupted for nearly three years. After the Greeks were expelled by Jehuda Maccabees and his soldiers, it was necessary to sanctify the temple again, but there was no ritual pure oil. Only a small jug was found, which was barely enough to light a menorah. The Maccabees, however, decided to take a risk to sanctify the temple. The menorah oil burned for eight days instead of one. That was enough time to make new clean oil. To commemorate this miracle, the Jews celebrate Hanukkah every year.
On the silver coin "Hanukkah," in the background, you can see a menorah with seven lit candles. The coin has a bright, colorful design. On the obverse, there is Going Liberty, painted in bright turquoise color with a metallic tint. To the right of it, there is a stone in the form of the Star of David. It is blue in color, with beautiful turquoise shades. It is not just a silver quarter, but a beautiful festive coin with many decorative elements. The coin also has gilding. Especially it can be seen on the reverse, which is completely covered with gold.
