The silver bullion market isn’t always the first place people think of when shopping for festive items during Halloween. However, each year private mints produce silver bullion rounds and bars for a limited time featuring designs that capture the spirit of the season. Halloween is the first major festival of the holiday season and comes around as temperatures fall, leaves turn colors, and children get excited about the months ahead. Provident Metals happily carries Halloween-themed silver bullion each year and would like to highlight some of the new items available in 2021.
New 2021 Halloween Designs
SilverTowne is one of the biggest producers of Halloween-themed silver. It offers 1 oz silver in the form of rounds and bars. Some of these options come with colorization, while others maintain their silver brilliance. All of the rounds and bars have .999 pure silver content with designs befitting the Halloween season. Below, you can learn a bit about some of the new designs for 2021:
- Colorized Pumpkin Round: A tried-and-true design that SilverTowne has offered in the past, this year includes a colorized version of the Jack-O-Lantern with orange throughout the pumpkin, a green stump on top, and an eerie yellow glow from within. This is all set against a black background.
- Colorized Witch Bar: Another popular design from the past, the witch bar is available at Provident Metals this year with a colorized field. The greeting of HAPPY HALLOWEEN has alternating letters of purple and orange, with witch’s legs for the LL’s in Halloween and a witch’s hat included. Like the pumpkin round, this is all set against a black background.
- Frightful Night Bar: New for 2021, the Frightful Night bar offers a scene you would not want to encounter walking down a dark neighborhood street on Halloween. An owl keeps a lookout from a gnarled tree as bats take to the night sky silhouetted against the Moon in the background. If it wasn’t bad enough the owl is keeping an eye on you, take note of the ghoulish eyes at the bottom of the field.
Popular Designs are Back!
In addition to the designs mentioned above, SilverTowne once again offers some of its popular designs from the past several years. These include the likes of the Headless Horseman Bar, a silver bar with a landscape design that shows a rider racing across the design field on horseback with a pumpkin in hand, and no head atop his shoulders. Both the Pumpkin Round and Witch Bar mentioned above are once again available as standard silver options, without colorization.
If you’re looking for something outside the traditional, secular celebration of Halloween, Monarch Precious Metals has you covered. Modern Halloween celebrations are rooted in Pagan and Christian festivals in the fall. In Mexico, the Day of the Dead comes from the Christian celebration of All Saint’s Day. On the Day of the Dead, people gather together with family to remember the dearly departed. One of the most famous symbols of this festival is the sugar skull or Cavalera. This year’s design includes the following option:
- Silver Day of the Dead Cross Skull: The 3D silver skulls reflect the image of a human skull with ornate background fields and, for 2021, a Christian cross at the center of the forehead. Each one has its own, unique toning and colorization. This further enhances the unique beauty of these 3D skull bars.
