The tradition of hanging Christmas stockings is thought to originate in the tale of a family’s fall into poverty. Although the couple worried deeply about the future of their three daughters, they were too proud to accept charity.
Concerned by these events, Saint Nicholas climbed onto the roof of their house one night and secretly dropped gold coins down the chimney. They fell into the sisters’ stockings, which had been left by the fireside to dry.
The family was overjoyed on finding the coins in the morning, and to this day children hang up stockings on Christmas Eve hoping to find them filled with gifts when they awake.
With a 24-carat gold-plated stocking at its centre, this beautiful 2oz silver antiqued piece is a wonderful celebration of a much-loved Christmas tradition.
Exuding warmth and festive joy, the coin portrays a traditional hearth on Christmas Eve. With a tree, wreath and garlands decked in coloured baubles and ribbons, the design includes a stocking, snow globes, gift-wrapped boxes, sleepy pets, and refreshments for Santa on his busiest night of the year. Also included in the design is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark. Encased in the coin’s centre is a 24-carat gold-plated Christmas stocking.
