Scottsdale Mint is pleased to announce a special limited mintage release; The 2019 Coca-Cola Santa 1 oz Silver Holiday Coin.

The original image was painted by artist Fred Mizen in 1930 for a Coca-Cola ad and depicted Santa in a crowd drinking a bottle of Coke. On the reverse, you will find the Fijian Coat of Arms over a textured backdrop of soft, drifting snow, a nod to the poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas ( A Visit from St. Nicholas ): As you tilt the coin back and forth in the light you will recall the line from the poem: “The moon, on the breast of the new-fallen snow, gave a luster of midday to objects below…”
