The history of Nutcrackers as functional design pieces is much older than most people realize. Go to most homes around the world during Christmas and you are likely to find decorative, wooden nutcrackers. Though each one is designed to use the mouth and jaw as an actual nutcracker, it is the detailed design of the figure that makes it more valuable.
The first such artistic depictions of nutcrackers came about in the 15th century, at least as far as the written record notes. In Germany, wooden, decorative nutcrackers have long been viewed as a symbol of good luck. In the United States, decorative nutcrackers became popular after World War II and the 1940 ballet, The Nutcracker.
Obverse features on 2021 1 oz Solomon Islands Nutcracker Shaped Coins include a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. This effigy of the Queen captures her figure in right-profile relief in a 1998 design from Ian Rank-Broadley. The effigy shows the Queen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara.
Reverse imagery on 2021 Solomon Islands Nutcracker Shaped Coins is a colorized design with a classic Nutcracker Soldier. The coin is shaped like this figure and the soldier wears a tall, black hat with a red military coat and blue pants.
These 2021 1 oz Solomon Islands Nutcracker Shaped Coins are available to you for purchase online with custom-shaped capsules. Each capsule is shaped just like the coin for a snug fit, but thats not all that makes it unique. The capsules also come with a small loop at the top so you can run a string or a hook through the capsule to use the coin as decoration on the tree this Christmas. Each coin and capsule come with a themed shipper.
