Santa Claus has been a part of the modern celebration of Christmas for centuries. He first emerged as figures like Father Christmas in England during the reign of King Henry VIII and as Sinterklaas in Dutch and Belgian societies. In the 19th century, a poem written in 1823 created the modern vision of Santa.
The poem A Visit from St. Nicholas helped establish the legend of Santa as an older gentleman with a portly frame, rosy cheeks, with white hair, and a long, white beard. Santa wears a red suit and pants with black boots, a black belt, and has trim on his outfit that is white and fluffy. Images of this version of Santa first emerged through caricatures from Thomas Nast.
On the obverse of 1 oz Silver Merry Christmas Santa Chimney Rounds is a depiction of Santa Claus. In this design, the common narrative regarding his entrance into homes plays out in the design. Santa is shown on the top of a snowy roof with a bag of toys slung over his shoulder. As he looks back at you, he swings one foot down into the chimney and prepares to slide down and into the home so he can deliver his gifts.
The reverse side of Silver Merry Christmas Santa Chimney Rounds features an image of snowflakes. This design features on countless Christmas-themed silver rounds from SilverTowne. It includes a large snowflake in the center with smaller snowflakes in the background field.
