The history of Santa Claus coming down the chimney is a complex tale. While Santa Claus as we know him today only evolved from other mythical tales in the 19th century, he is based in large part on the 4th century Greek bishop Saint Nicholas. This Saint Nicholas famously tossed gold bags into a fathers home for use as a dowry for his daughters.
Although the story of Saint Nicholas predates the advent of the chimney by 900 years, the story of Saint Nicholas changed over time to feature him dropping gold bags down the chimney instead. Many other cultures have used the chimney as a point of entry and exit for mythical beings.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Colorized Santa Down the Chimney Silver Round, you find a depiction of one of the friendliest characters to descend a chimney from cultural tales. This bright and cheery round features a smiling Santa with rosy cheeks as he begins to slide down the chimney. On his back he carries a bag overflowing with gifts, as the blue sky lights the background the roof is covered in white snow.
The reverse of the Santa Down the Chimney Silver Round has three simple engravings. Across the center of the design field is One Ounce. In the outer rim below the design field, the engravings of .999 Fine Silver are present.
