Santa Claus originates from the legend of Saint Nicholas, who was born somewhere around 280 A.D. in modern-day Turkey. Saint Nicholas inherited wealth from his family and it is said that he spent his life travelling the countryside to use his wealth to help the poor and the sick. Saint Nicholas did not gain popularity in the US until the 18th century when Dutch immigrants gathered to honor the anniversary of his death. This is where he got the name Santa Claus, which was derived from his Dutch name “Sinter Klaas”.
The obverse of these Christmas silver rounds feature Santa Claus standing on a snowy roof with a sack full of presents. He is depicted smiling with his rosy cheeks prominent on his face. He looks to be about to climb down the chimney of the house to deliver the gifts under the Christmas tree. The words “MERRY CHRISTMAS” are minted at the bottom of the round.
The reverse of these silver rounds is beautifully detailed. It features a wonderfully crafted snowflake in the middle of the round with 10 evenly spaced smaller snowflakes around it. Stems of holly are minted around the edge of the silver round with the words “ONE TROY OUNCE .999 FINE SILVER” at the very top.
These silver rounds would make an excellent Christmas gift for anyone to get their silver stack started!
