Each decorative skull represents the departed soul of a loved one, and honors the return of a particular spirit.

In creating this highly collectible skull series of 10 oz Silver Bars, the Kitco design team called upon the talents of Canadian artist Kristiana Vellucci. Inspiration for the unique appearance and decoration of these silver bars came from the tradition and color of sugar skulls in Mexican folk art. The well-respected Sunshine Mint in the USA modelled a combination of frosted and polished finishes before striking the 10 oz Silver Skull bars at their state of the art facility. A filigree in mirror finish surrounds the central skull, and finally, advanced technology was used to apply the delicate color to the 10 oz Silver Bar - Cross Skull .999.
