Ded Moroz, more commonly known as Father Frost has long been recognised by Russian civilians as an iconic symbol of Russian winter, New Year’s and presents.
Whilst the original Russian gift-giver was the famous Saint Nicholas, the country’s Patron Saint, the figure of Saint Nicholas originates from another folklore hero, the ancient Morozko. Morozko was a powerful figure who was known for his ability to chain water with his ‘’iron’’ frosts. Whilst Ded Moroz was banned in Soviet Russia near the end of the First World War, his status as a present giver during the festive period remains a key tenet to Soviet culture and is distinguished in both his appearance and character to the original Santa Claus.
This stunning 1oz Silver Legal Tender Coin showcases the iconic Father Frost Character in Vivid Colour with quite beautiful detail.
Even more unique, this special edition comes housed in a Matryoshka, or Russian Doll securing your Coin in style.
