The Mexican celebration known as the Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos in Spanish, is often confused with the North American celebrations of Halloween. While the latter is celebrated at night and features themes of terror and mischief, the Day of the Dead festivities begin on October 31st and end of November 1st each year as a celebration of life. Families gather over the two-day period to celebrate the lives of those who have passed on in an explosion of color, festivals, and family meals.
In the new 2 oz Monarch Sunflower Silver Skull, you’ll find one of the most common figures from this celebration. The sugar skull, as it’s known, is used in the celebrations each year and are based upon sugar art traditions brought to Mexico and Central America in the 17th century by Italian missionaries.
The primary design of this Sunflower Silver Skull features ornate depictions of the sunflower on the human skull, along with other design swirls and elements. The 2 oz silver bar has a layer of 24-karat gold gilded onto the design elements for a beautiful combination of silver and gold in one bar. This 3D bar has a flat base that features the Monarch Precious Metals logo, the weight, purity, and metal content of the bar, as well as its unique serial number engraved along with “Limited Edition.”
Monarch went all out on the production and packaging of these new 2 oz Sunflower Silver Skull Bars. Each bar is housed inside of a wooden display box that is custom made in the shape of the skull. Further, the Certificate of Authenticity is made from .999 fine silver as well and contains the individual serial number featured on the reverse of the bar.
