Coca-Cola began to run specialized Christmas advertisements in the 1920s with shopping-focused ads appearing in magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post. The original ads from Coca-Cola at this time of year featured Santa using a design inspired by the works of Thomas Nast. These original Santa images were strict looking and in line with historical depictions of Santa as a tall, gaunt man or even a mean looking elf.
Beginning in 1930, Coca-Cola changed directions with its Santa imagery to capture the now-famous incarnations of a jolly man with rosy cheeks, white hair, and a white beard. In 1930, Frank Mizen developed an image of Santa Claus drinking a coke while surrounded by a crowd in a shopping center. This image has endured for nearly a century now with Coca-Cola ads around the Christmas season.
On the obverse of 2019 1 oz Silver Fiji Coca Cola Holiday Coins is the image of Santa Claus in left-profile relief. Santa lifts a Coke to his mouth to enjoy the most popular soft drink in the world. Above his figure on this side of the silver coin is the engraving of the Coca-Cola brand image.
