    Though he was billed as “The Last of the Aztecs,” Schlitzie was most likely born in The Bronx in 1901. He was born with a neurodevelopmental disorder called microcephaly, leaving him with a small brain and skull and severe mental retardation.

    Schlitzie performed in sideshow attractions with many circuses. He began his film career with The Sideshow in 1928 and Tod Browning’s 1932 classic Freaks. Both films were dramas set in the circus, using actual freak show performers.

    His last major performance was in 1968. He died in 1971 at age 70.

    • Contains 1 oz. Troy of .999 Fine Silver
    • Obverse: Famous image of Schlitzie, with “SCHLITZIE THE PINHEAD” above.
    • Reverse: “FAMOUS CIRCUS SIDESHOW ACTS” on a circus tent background with the hallmark across the lower circumference.
