The origins of Santa Claus date back, in the minds of millions, to the Germanic pagan tribes of the ancient European world. It is believed that an ancient Germanic pagan god associated with a midwinters festival that streaked across the sky contributed to the characteristics that are now associated with Santa Claus in his Christmas Eve ride around the world in one night.
Others believe that Santa Claus originates from a more recent past. He is commonly associated with or given the characteristics of Father Christmas in England and the Dutch figure Sinterklaas.
In the obverse design, 2019 1 oz Silver Merry Christmas Rounds feature a portrait of Santa Claus. The image of Santa Claus popularized in North America diverges significantly from early renditions of the 4th century Greek bishop Saint Nicholas and Sinterklaas of the Netherlands. Described in the 1823 poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas” as a portly fellow with red suit and pants with white collars and trim, Santa’s jolly appearance includes rosy cheeks and a thick, white beard.
The reverse face of 2019 1 oz Silver Merry Christmas Rounds includes a field of snowflakes. These snowflakes are like any you’d find in real life in that each one is unique and not like the others around it. A ribbon in the center of the design includes the “2019” date mark and the round’s weight, purity, and metal content are included on this side.
These 2019 1 oz Silver Merry Christmas Rounds are available to you for purchase online in brand-new condition. Individual silver rounds ship with a protective plastic flip while multiples of 20 are housed inside of mint tubes.
