Celebrate Día de los Muertos with APMEX

Silver Sugar Skulls

We’re proud to offer a variety of Silver Sugar Skulls in honor of the Mexican holiday, Día de los Muertos. These striking Silver decorative skulls stand out amongst other Silver bullion due to their colorful designs and are available now at APMEX.

The Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican ancestry living in other places, especially the United States. It is also acknowledged internationally in many other cultures. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember loved ones who have passed on and help support their spiritual journey in the afterlife.

Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars called ofrendas, honoring the deceased using calaveras, Aztec marigolds and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed. Visitors also leave possessions of the deceased at the graves.

A calavera, commonly called a sugar skull, is a representation of a human skull made from decorative sugar and/or clay. Today, sugar skulls can be made of different objects, like paper, desserts such as cookies, and even pillows.

Each of these 2 oz Hand Poured Silver Skull is decorated with dark antique polish in ornate designs and colors such as blue, purple, turquoise and pink. APMEXclusive® skulls feature the All Seeing Eye surrounded by a bushel of roses and a Spiderweb design with a lock and key on the skull’s forehead. Designs such as a rose, cross and Marigold floral pattern are also available to celebrate Dia de los Muertos.

Prior to Spanish colonization in the 16th century, the celebration took place at the beginning of summer. Gradually, it was associated with October 31, November 1 and November 2 to coincide with the Western Christianity triduum of Allhallowtide: All Saints' Eve, All Saints' Day, and All Souls' Day.

Celebrate the holiday and honor loved ones with a variety of Silver Sugar Skulls, available now at APMEX.
