Rocking horses are a typical toy to feature in the toy bag Santa uses to make his deliveries on Christmas Eve. The concept of the rocking horse comes from the Middle Ages when jousters would practice their craft using a device known as a rocking cradle. This allowed the jousters to practice stability in the saddle while wielding a lance. However, the transition from a rocking cradle in the Middle Ages to a toy took several hundred years, with the first known rocking horse toys emerging in the 19th century.
The obverse of Silver Merry Christmas Rocking Horse Rounds comes with a depiction of two of the most common toys historically delivered at Christmas. The larger of the two is a wooden rocking horse with fabric for the mane and tail. Near the bottom skids of the rocking horse, you will notice a wooden toy train. There is a seasonal greeting on this side of the silver round as well.
On the reverse field of 1 oz Silver Rocking Horse Rounds is an image of snowflakes. A common design used by SilverTowne on its Christmas-themed silver rounds, the field shows a large snowflake at the center with numerous additional snowflakes falling in the background fields.
