Product Description

Erin Go Bragh! Get this ultimate coin for the Irish in all of us - a lucky four-leaf clover, in bright green, on this one troy ounce, pure silver proof! A shamrock perfect for St. Patrick's Day, or anytime you need a some extra good luck!

Green and four-leafed, a sprig of clover is instantly recognizable as the Irish symbol associated with the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations held throughout the land every March 17th. For many, the four-leaf clover is just as symbolic - a centuries-old omen of good things to come, as celebrated on this one troy ounce, pure silver coin in vibrant color! The four-leaf clover is a rare variation of the common three-leaved clover or shamrock. According to tradition, such leaves bring good luck to their finders, especially if found accidentally. In addition, each leaf is believed to represent something: the first is for faith, the second is for hope, the third is for love, and the fourth is for luck.

Did you know that there are about 6-1/2 million Gaelic or Irish folk in Ireland - and about 35 million Irish Americans, more than 10% of the population of the United States? And on St. Patrick's Day, the Irish population increases tenfold - on March 17, everyone's Irish! Bring a little luck to your collection by adding this Irish beauty that boasts rich, vibrant color! Erin go bragh!

Why Didn't They Think of This Sooner? Happy St. Paddy's Day!
The design by Canadian artist Lisa Thomson Khan focuses on a precision-engraved rendering of a four-leaf clover. This symbol of luck includes a number of details that give it a more life-like appearance, including the fine lines that hint at the darker, herringbone markings within each of the elliptical-shaped leaves. The selective application of vibrant full color adds a burst of hues to the clover, whose “shamrock green” is perfectly in step with St. Patrick’s Day celebrations across North America. A mix of finishes throughout the design places special emphasis on each of the engraved elements, particularly the Celtic knot-inspired element that pays tribute to the rich, cultural heritage of Irish-Americans.

It is said that Saint Patrick, the fifth-century saint whose death is commemorated each year on March 17, famously used the clover's three leaves to illustrate the Christian principle of the Holy Trinity. But many are likely to associate this little green plant with the rarer four-leaf variety, which is a centuries-old symbol for luck that is widely considered to be an omen of good things to come. So if you happen upon a four-leaf clover, don’t cast it aside - you never know what luck it may bring!
