    Tis the Season for Buying Silver Bullion

    Posted on November 04, 2019

    Another Halloween is in the books, and that means it’s time to turn our attention to the holiday season stretch run. November brings cooler temps across the nation, family time and feasting at Thanksgiving, and the start of the holiday shopping season with Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. Christmas silver bullion makes a great gift option during the holiday season. With designs that celebrate both the Christian background of the Christmas holiday and the general winter season, there is something for every silver enthusiast out there. Explore the number of Christmas silver products we carry to discover a new gift option and help spur the interest of the next generation of silver lovers.

    Christmas Silver Rounds

    One of the most common formats for Christmas silver is the silver round. The designs on both sides of Christmas-themed silver rounds are chosen by the issuing mint. You will notice there are designs specific to Christmas with images of Santa Claus, and those that celebrate the winter season with images of snowfall and snowmen. The following are a few examples of silver rounds with holiday themes:

    • Christmas Joy: the obverse of these rounds includes the image of Santa Claus standing next to one of his faithful reindeer. Santa wears his traditional heavy coat and winter cap with his large belt buckle visible in the design. The reindeer has a mature antler rack with bell-covered harness that connects him to the rest of the team driving Santa’s sleigh.
    • Merry Christmas Santa: on the obverse of this round, you see Santa standing at the apex of a snow-covered roof with his gift bag in tow. He is looking back at you as he prepares to descend the chimney and make an important Christmas delivery to the home’s residents.
    • Holiday Greetings Snowman: this obverse design steps away from Christmas themes to revel in the joy of freshly fallen snow. A snowman with its traditional pipe and top-hat is riding downhill on his sled as he holds the reigns in one hand and clutches his tophat with the other.

    Christmas silver rounds are an ideal choice for stocking stuffers during the holiday season. With the lowest premiums, these silver rounds are an affordable option to fill the stockings before Christmas morning.

    Christmas Silver Coins

    At first glance, silver coins and silver rounds have a lot in common. Both take on the common circular shape, in most cases, and have 1 oz weights as the primary option. However, remember silver coins have a face value and are typically struck by sovereign mints, while silver rounds have no face value and are issued by private mints. There are numerous Christmas-themed silver coins available that would make the perfect starting point for a coin collection. Examples of designs include:

    • Christmas Tree Ball: this coin features an inset capsule that has holiday-colored jewels of red and green that is visible on both design fields. One side of the coin features a decorated Christmas tree, while the other has the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II as a coin issued on behalf of Niue.
    • Christmas Reindeer Coin: this particular product is unique in two ways. First, it is a star-shaped silver coin with a seven-pointed star shape. The reverse includes the colorized image of one of Santa’s reindeer harnessed up and flying through the air as it guides Santa’s sleigh on Christmas eve. The obverse has an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II and is issued for Australia by the Perth Mint.

    These Christmas-themed coins have higher premiums because they are collectible specimens. Each one comes with special packaging and has a mintage cap, making them ideal for starting or expanding a silver collection during the gift-giving season.

    Christmas Silver Bars

    Finally, Christmas silver is also available in stackable silver bar forms. The 1 oz Merry Christmas Santa Silver Bar offers more space for the mint to take its holiday designs a step further. With a vertical orientation to the design elements, the Merry Christmas Santa silver bar depicts Santa’s full figure as he stands near the fireplace in a decorated home. With a tree and some presents in the background, Santa stands with his list out checking who has been naughty and who has been nice.
