Building a snowman is one of the quintessential winter activities. Free of cost and simple to do, building a snowman can be an individual endeavor or a group effort. Children pass hours at a time during the winter months rolling big balls of snow together and stacking them one on the other to create crude human-like figures. Throw in a carrot for a nose and some sticks for arms and you have the perfect snowman.
All 1 oz Silver Holiday Greetings Snowman Rounds are available to you individually inside of protective flips, sheets of 20 rounds, or boxes with 500 rounds. Each individual specimen is in brand-new condition.
On the obverse field of the 1 oz Silver Holiday Greetings Snowman Round is the image of a snowman riding down a snow-covered hill on his sled. The snowman clutches the guide rope of the sled in his left hand while holding onto his top hat with his right hand. You can see that he is wearing a scarf around his neck and has some coal for buttons down his chest.
The first depiction of a snowman in human literature is much older than you might imagine. An illuminated manuscript in the Book of Hours from 1380 includes what is widely considered the first documentation of snowmen in human society. The book is kept in the Koninklijke Bibliotheek in The Hague, Netherlands. In neighboring Belgium, the people of Brussels banded together to create the Miracle of 1511, a public art installation with over 100 snowmen!
For the reverse field, the Silver Holiday Greetings Snowman Round features a large snowflake in the center flanked by several smaller snowflakes falling to the ground. Around the design field border is a design of holly leaves.
