The history of snowmen dates back much farther than most people might realize. One of the first photographs of a snowman ever taken was snapped around 1853. This early depiction showed two individuals building a snowman and was taken by a Welsh photographer by the name of Mary Dillwyn.
However, written references of snowmen date back even further than 1853. Artistic depictions in museums, art galleries, and libraries in Europe suggest that snowmen originated during the Middle Ages, or at the very least, were already commonplace by then. One of the earliest known depictions of a snowman is actually from a doodle in the margins of a book from 1380 that is currently held in a library in The Hague.
A snowman is shown smiling on you on the obverse of 1 oz Happy Holiday Snowman Silver Bars. The design shows only the head of the snowman with his top hat, a scarf that runs down the length of the design field, and coal eyes. The snowman is also smoking a corn-cob pipe and there is a puff of smoke emanating from the end of the pipe.
For the reverse design field of Happy Holiday Snowman Silver Bars, SilverTowne offers a common design element. The field on this side of the bar is blank in the middle and is left this way to accommodate requests for custom engraving when the bars are purchased directly from the mint. There are inscriptions of the identifying hallmarks on this face and a wreath frame on either side of the design field.
These 1 oz Happy Holiday Snowman Silver Bars are available from SilverTowne’s broad offering of Christmas-themed silver bars for sale. You can purchase these bars in individual flips, tubes of 20, or boxes of 500 bars.
