The Origins of Santa Dollars

Santa Dollars have a long history dating back to the 19th century, when banking was unregulated and many banking institutions attempted to draw popularity to their banks by issuing banking notes featuring Santa Claus. Among the institutions who created Santa Claus-themed banknotes was the Howard Banking Company of Boston, Massachusetts in the 1850s. They released a $5 bill depicting Santa Claus in a sled and wearing tricorn hat while being pulled by a herd of reindeer across the roof. Several other banks followed suit until the tradition was phased out when the U.S. treasury department took over the issuance of such bills moving forward. More recently, the tradition lives on through the Holiday Dollar Bills Company, who have issued several versions of Santa Dollars along with other Christmas themed currency depicting other mainstay Christmas items, characters and symbols. Building on this momentum, many  businesses and communities began to purchase and exchange Christmas cash to encourage holiday spending and spread holiday pleasure. Santa Dollars have changed over time and are now used in a variety of countries around the world, each with its distinctive designs and traditions.
