The myth of Santa Claus finding his way down the chimney and into homes to deliver gifts is one that has evolved over time. Santa is based upon the historical bishop of Myra, in modern-day Turkey, named Saint Nicholas. This Saint Nicholas was known as a gift giver and once famously threw bags of gold into a family’s home through the window, one of which happened to land in a stocking.
However, in the 3rd and 4th centuries there were no such thing as chimneys on homes. The myth evolved over time, as Santa’s myth grew from Saint Nicholas’ real deeds, to feature Santa squirming down chimneys to leave gifts and stocking stuffers for good girls and boys.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Colorized Silver Santa Down the Chimney Round is a colorized, fun-loving depiction of Santa. The jolly old fella is depicted standing in the Chimney, ready to squeeze his way down to deliver the many toys in the sack over his shoulder. The background is colored with blue daylight, and is accented by a few white snowflakes and a snow-covered roof.
Santa himself his wearing his traditional red robes and hat, complete with fluffy, white cuffs on the coat and ball on the top of his cap. His beard is oversized in this depiction, and you can even catch a hint of those red, rosy cheeks on Kris Kringle! The reverse of the Colorized Santa Down the Chimney Rounds features the weight, purity, and metal content with no added colorizations.
