Known officially as a Calavera, the so-called sugar skull or Day of the Dead skull is a human skull item that is used widely in Mexican Day of the Dead holiday celebrations. The use of a skull in association with this holiday dates to roughly the 15th century and originally involved using molds to cast the skulls.
Starting around the 1630s, versions of the skull were produced using sugar and fulfilled a different role in the holiday’s celebration. The sugar skulls were created, many believe, to give to children during the Day of the Dead celebrations. In some cases, sugar skulls were also used as simple décor or offerings during the celebration.
Obverse designs of the 2 oz Monarch Silver Day of the Dead Rose Skulls feature a unique focus on the image of a skull. This 3D visualization captures what appears to be a smiling human figure with the eye sockets and nasal cavity empty, though the mouth remains full of teeth. Monarch Precious Metals has created several previous issues of Day of the Dead Skulls, but this Rose design is a new image. The ornately decorated skull features a large rose bloom along the forehead with individual rose petals inside each of the eye sockets.
Reverse fields on the 2 oz Monarch Silver Day of the Dead Rose Skulls are flat with hand-stamped inscriptions that identify the important details of the bar. These include the Monarch Precious Metals mint mark at the top, with the weight, purity, and metal content included on this side.
These 2 oz Monarch Silver Day of the Dead Rose Skulls are available in brand-new condition from Monarch Precious Metals. The bars are individually housed inside of protective plastic sleeves. The bars have distinctive toning that can vary from rainbow coloring to black-and-gray colorization. Please note it is possible to receive random toning coloration and we cannot guarantee which type of toning will be present on the bar you receive.
