The Día de Muertos – Day of the Dead – is a Mexican holiday that is becoming increasingly popular throughout the world. Celebrated at the end of October the iconic skull or calavera makeup based on the famous La Catrina skeleton adorns many faces and is nowadays prominently featured in pop culture and art.

CIT’s sensational skull series is the perfect way to extend the popularity of La Catrina to the numismatic world. La Catrina Skull is already the third and clearly most elaborate of CIT’s smartminting skull-shaped coins. Minted to the same standard as the revered Skull No1 but adorned with fine detail and typical calavara designs, La Catrina Skull represents the most captivating silver skull in the collection.

Customarily, a small gold coin with similar ornaments is issued alongside the silver coin.
