The Royal Mint Official Christmas Stocking with The Nutcracker 2018 Christmas Coin
Treat someone special with our first official Christmas stocking. Complete with our Nutcracker 2018 coin this stocking is perfect for those who love a traditional Christmas.
Take the coin out of the pocket and pop in in the toe, then fill up with other goodies and gifts.
Traditionally, St Nicholas, the fourth-century Greek saint, on hearing of a bride to be whose father couldn’t provide a dowry, came down a chimney and put a bag of coins in her stocking hung by the fireplace. The following night he came back and gifted more coins to the second daughter, and the next night to the third daughter. From this the custom of hanging a stocking up at Christmas was started.
