Celebrate National Tooth Fairy Day With Silver Bullion

As an adult, it is sad to say that we grow out of our childlike wonderment. We stop believing in such things like Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. We become more cynical until that magical day when nostalgia hits with our own children and once again, the belief in magic happens once more. But as holiday figures such as Santa and the Easter Bunny get their very own holiday, that magical figure that replaces our baby teeth with money can pop up anytime between the ages of 6-12 has also gained its very own day on August 22nd: National Tooth Fairy Day.

But just how did the Tooth Fairy cement their way into our childhood? Inspired by other traditions around the world, she was actually inspired by the “Tooth Mouse.” We know---what?

Origin of the Tooth Fairy

This tradition, found in places like New Zealand and Mexico, is based on the fact that mice have strong teeth. If children left their lost teeth for the Tooth Mouse, it was believed that they too would have strong teeth. In hopes that a magical figure such as a fairy would be less scary than a mouse coming into your room at night, America adopted the tradition and the Tooth Fairy was born.

It does not matter if you have the type of child that rips their teeth out or one that gets emotional thinking about losing a tooth and the pain associated with it, the thought of money waiting on the other end is enough for them to accept the fact that it is all a part of life. While money is a great exchange for the tradition, we find that silver bullion may even be better. Why? The potential for its value to increase is the biggest reason, but we also believe that our specific Tooth Fairy design is enough to make any child jump for joy once they wake up the next morning.

Our standard non-dated back can be found on the reverse of the design as the weight and purity designation (ONE TROY OUNCE .999 FINE SILVER) is displayed around the area for left blank for engraving.
