Building a snowman might seem like the pursuit of modern schoolchildren when the snow piles high and officials call off school for the day, but the first recorded picture of a snowman predates anyone alive today. The earliest physical documentation of a snowman comes from Welsh photographer Mary Dilwyn and was taken in 1853.
The earliest recorded documentation of a snowman came in the illustrations in the margins of a work titled Book of Hours. Written in 1380, this work is housed in the Koninkiljke Bibliotheek at The Hague in the Netherlands. From the medieval world to the modern, snowman tend to look the same.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Colorized Snowman Silver Round is the image of a happy-go-lucky snowman holding a small pine tree in its right arm. A snowy scene is depicted behind its figure, with snowcapped trees and firs reaching into the sky, where the yellow sun tries to warm the world in winter.
Snowman are typically built in the same fashion all the time. Three large snowballs is all it takes. Adorning a snowman is a different story. Many snowmen are featured with coal or buttons for the buttons on their chest and eyes on their head. Carrots are the popular choice for noses, and any variety of items makeup the smile.
