The rocking horse is a common child’s toy that was typically depicted in Christmas-themed artwork. Over the centuries, simpler toys such as this were made by Santa and his elves in his workshop at the North Pole for delivery to households around the world. While the first rocking horse as a toy did not appear until the 17th century, it has roots that go back even further than that.
There are various predecessors of the rocking horse, but most believe that the rocking horse was inspired by the rocking cradle. These cradles were used in the Middle Ages as a titling seat to train for jousting. As of the 19th century, the rocking horse has become more of a toy than anything else.
On the obverse of 1 oz Merry Christmas Rocking Horse Silver Rounds is a depiction of a small, wooden rocking horse. This rocking horse is carved from wood and fixed to two rocking skids at the base. There are fluffs of fabric to create the mane and tail of the horse. At the base of the rocking horse, you’ll find another popular Christmas toy, a small train.
The reverse side of Merry Christmas Rocking Horse Silver Rounds comes with a common design element. The design includes a large snowflake at the center of the field with several snowflakes falling through the background field.
