Purim is a holiday in memory of the miraculous rescue of Jews in the Persian kingdom over 2400 years ago, during the reign of King Akhashverosh (Artaxerxes). The name comes from the word "lot." With the help of lots, the king's advisor Aman determined the day - 13 Adar, when the Jews of Persia should have been exterminated. But the king did not yet know that his beloved wife Esther was also Jewish. The story ended with the king wanting to repeal the decree. But the king's edict couldn't be undone, so he had to issue another one. The Jews were allowed to defend themselves, their property, and to take the property of attacker, if Jew win. So Aman's insidious plan turned against him and all those who opposed the Jews. Since then, two days after that date have become days of celebration and feast, when the Jewish hold theatrical performances, carnival parades, and also it is usual to send friends a festive treat. Everyone's baking small triangular pies with jam, and they are called hamantaschen (Aman's ears).
On a coin in honor of this holiday, you can see these little triangular pies in the background. On the left in the corner, there is a ratchet - the feast is fun and noisy. The coin is painted in gold, while the Walking Liberty is painted in blue. There is also a Hamsa amulet of blue shimmering real opal on the coin.
The coin will be a wonderful memorable gift for the holiday of Purim, which everyone loves to celebrate. Check out the coins for other Jewish holidays on this collection page, if you are looking to buy silver coins as a gift!
