Easter is a Christian holiday, and has many traditions from pagan cultures. Many people celebrate Easter by attending church services, participating in egg hunts, decorating eggs, and enjoying special meals with family and friends. Easter is also associated with the arrival of spring and the renewal of life, which is symbolized by the egg and the bunny.
Even if you aren’t religious, there is a popular tradition where many families enjoy preparing an egg hunt for their children. Each child takes their basket and fills it with coloured eggs and candy.
If you are looking for a unique and special present that will last for more than a few days, Colonial Acres is here to help. Here are some great coin collector gift ideas that are sure to put a smile on that special person’s face this Easter.
Coins With Bunnies
Although the exact details of why the bunny became associated with Easter are not fully known, it’s thought that the rabbit was a symbol of fertility. German children have a tradition of an egg-laying hare that is considered to be the source of the Easter Bunny. Known as Oschter Haws, the rabbit would lay colorful eggs in nests. Coins like this Happy Easter pure copper coin are sure to put a smile on anyone’s face. Below are some more coins that depict bunnies and rabbits making fun gifts for coin collectors.

Bunnies might be the symbol many children associate with Easter, but we have many more coins representing other aspects of the holiday. Easter is celebrated in the spring, usually in March or April, and for many it is a season of joy, hope, and renewal.
