Each 2 oz Monarch Silver Day of the Dead Marigold Skull is available to you with its own individual plastic sleeve. The skulls are available in brand-new condition and come with various toning. Monarch Precious Metals uses toning to highlight all of the intricate details of the skull design. The result, however, is that many of its batches of silver skulls come out with different variations in toning. As such, Monarch does not guarantee particular toning batches to dealers. We cannot guarantee the toning on the silver skulls you will receive, but you can expect it to range from rainbow coloring to black-and-gray coloring.
From October 31st to November 2nd, people of Mexican heritage around the world celebrate the Day of the Dead. In Mexican culture, death is viewed simply as a part of the human life cycle that isn’t to be bemoaned indefinitely. Instead, Day of the Dead celebrations bring family and friends together to honor those who have gone before them in their families. The use of the Calavera, the sugar skull, is something that brings children into the celebrations and is also used by adults to decorate the graves of their loved ones.
The obverse field of 2 oz Monarch Silver Day of the Dead Marigold Skulls have 3D fields that replicate the appearance of a smiling skull. The skull has a full set of teeth with empty eye sockets and an empty nasal cavity. The design elements included on this side of the skull include Aztec marigolds. The Aztec marigold is a common flower that grows in the Mexican states of Mexico, Puebla, and Veracruz, and are often used to decorate graves during Day of the Dead celebrations.
On the reverse face of the 2 oz Monarch Silver Day of the Dead Marigold Skulls is a flat field. This side of the skull has hand-stamped inscriptions with the Monarch mint mark, weight, purity, and metal content.
