Dia de Muertos is the original Spanish term for the holiday celebrating the dead and departed from this world. Anglophone countries often use the phrasing of Dia de los Muertos to refer to the Mexican holiday that is celebrated throughout central and southern regions of Mexico. The tradition came to Mexico with Spanish colonizers, but it also maintains aspects of previous Aztec, Mayan, and Toltec cultures.
One of the elements from Aztec, Mayan, and Toltec celebrations of the Day of the Dead is the Calavera, or the sugar skull. This representation of the human skull is historically made out of sugar or clay during the Day of the Dead celebrations. The original purpose of the skulls was to display them as decorations near the tombs and graves of lost loved ones.
The obverse of 10 oz Monarch Silver Day of the Dead Skulls includes an ornate design on human skull shapes. The skull has deep eye sockets and an empty nose cavity, with the mouth arranged as it smiles and the teeth all showing. Each of the skulls produced by Monarch Precious Metals comes with various toning and coloration depending on the batch it was produced in.
On the reverse face of 10 oz Monarch Silver Day of the Dead Skulls is a flat surface with several engravings. The Monarch Precious Metals logo, a crown formed with the letters “MPM,” features at the top of the design field. Other markings include the weight, purity, and metal content of the bars.
These 10 oz Monarch Silver Day of the Dead Skulls are available to you in brand-new condition. Each bar is housed in its own plastic bag with a zip top.
