Last December, my bullion dealer offered up some Asahi Christmas rounds. Normally, I wouldn't bother with Christmas-related bullion unless it was dirt cheap. I made an exception on these for a reason, but first let's look at these.
The obverse has a very simple design featuring "Merry Christmas & Happy New Year" along with some reindeer and picture of the world with stars across it. The stock picture doesn't do it justice, because these look excellent in hand.
The reverse features Santa flying across the sky, above a small town consisting of a few houses and a church. This is an excellent example of where "less is more."
The only reason I picked up these rounds instead of skipping over them was this.
My dealer also offered up air tite containers that have a loop at the top, so they can be hung up as ornaments!
Weight: 1 Troy oz
Diameter: 38.61 mm
When my boys get older, move out, and start families of their own, they'll each get one as a keepsake to go on their first Christmas tree away from home. 😁
Each month, I give away a $1 Goldback or 4 HBD. The winner gets to choose.
Note: Some countries may have prohibitively expensive shipping or delivery, which may not be feasible. I reserve the right to award the winner 4 HBD instead of a Goldback at my discretion.
