On the obverse side of 10 oz Silver Monarch Day of the Dead Skulls is the 3D depiction of the human skull known as the Calavera. Used in Day of the Dead celebrations, the Calavera is an ornate human skull often made historically from sugar. It is used to decorate the graves of the departed during the Day of the Dead celebrations.
The modern Mexican celebration of Dia de los Muertos is rooted in both Spanish Christian celebrations of All Saints Day and indigenous celebrations of the Aztec, Mayan, and Toltec cultures. The sugar skulls were popular among the indigenous peoples as a means of celebrating the lives of those lost, rather than mourning them. Today, sugar skulls are produced for both the purpose of decorating graves and tombs, as well as to give children as candy treats during the holiday celebration.
For the reverse of 10 oz Silver Monarch Day of the Dead Skull, you will notice a flat surface with identifying markers. This side of the silver skulls includes the Monarch Precious Metals logo formed by the “MPM” crown, as well as inscriptions of “10 Troy oz 999 Fine Silver.”
