The concept of Santa Claus’s sleigh is believed to have its origins in Norse mythology. The Norse god Odin was often depicted riding a flying, eight-legged horse named Sleipnir, which could traverse great distances in the sky. This imagery may have influenced the idea of Santa Claus traveling in a magical sleigh pulled by reindeer.
All of these 1 oz Santa Sleigh Silver Rounds are available to you online with individual or bulk packaging. The rounds are packaged individually in plastic flips or housed by multiples of 20 in acrylic tubes.
In the obverse design of the Santa Sleigh Silver Round, you will find a depiction of Santa’s sleigh flying through the night sky. With twinkling stars and the moon overhead, Santa’s sleigh is in the foreground as his team of flying reindeer takes flight in an arching pattern off over the mountains in the distance.
For the reverse side of 1 oz Santa Sleigh Rounds, the mint offers a simple design concept. Here, a wreath encircles the design element with the identifying hallmarks at the center of the round’s field.
The modern image of Santa’s sleigh gained widespread popularity through the 1823 poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas,” commonly known as “The Night Before Christmas.” This poem, written by Clement C. Moore, described Santa Claus’s sleigh as being pulled by eight reindeer, including names like Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donder (or Donner), and Blitzen.
