The term “Merry Christmas” is a popular one uttered in conversation during the holiday season. However, the origins of the term are somewhat obscure. Modern scholars cannot precisely pinpoint the origin of the term itself, but one of the first documented uses of the term dates back to 1699. A Royal Navy admiral used the term “Merry Christmas” in an informal letter he wrote.
Santa Claus is featured on the obverse field of 2020 1 oz Merry Christmas Santa Silver Rounds. The design shows Santa Claus standing in his traditional wardrobe of a coat and trousers with a warm cap as he holds an American flag next to him on a small flagpole. Seated at Santa’s feet are a dog and a cat. This side of the round has a seasonal greeting of “Merry Christmas” with the date mark included.
Though Santa Claus is a legendary character in Western Christian culture, the modern version of Santa comes from historical figures. The 4th century Greek bishop, Saint Nicholas, is the figure most often cited as the origin of Santa Claus, the British figure Father Christmas, and the Dutch figure Sinterklaas.
The reverse face includes the image of one large snowflake in the center of the design field. That flake is accompanied by a variety of other snowflakes. Around the outer rim of the design field is a border of holly, a staple plant of the holiday season. There is an inscription along the top that reads One Troy Ounce .999 Fine Silver.
