The celebration known as Dia de Muertos in Mexico is a multi-day public holiday that includes a celebration of friends and family who have died, while also gathering together living friends and family in prayer. The Day of the Dead is not viewed as a time to focus on feelings of sadness regarding lost loved ones, but rather, is a holiday meant to help families celebrate the lives of those are no longer with them in the living world.
The obverse side of the 2 oz Silver Monarch Day of the Dead Rose Skull includes a depiction of a human skull. This 3D field has a human skull as its primary design, but it is enhanced with ornate design elements common to sugar skulls. The elements on the skull bring beautiful décor, with a large rose on the forehead of the skull and smaller rose petals inside of the empty eye sockets of the figure.
On the reverse side of 2 oz Silver Monarch Day of the Dead Rose Skulls, you will find a flat surface with inscriptions that have been hand-stamped into the surface of the bar. Those markings include the Monarch mint mark, as well as the weight, purity, and metal content of the skull.
