The concept of nutcrackers as wooden, decorative pieces emerged in Europe in the 15th century. One legend states that a German puppet maker was able to win a local contest by designing a doll whose jaw moved in a motion that would actually crack nuts. Over the course of time, nutcrackers became a popular symbol of good luck in Germany.
On the obverse of 2021 Solomon Islands Nutcracker Shaped Silver Coins is an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.

Nutcrackers became more popular in the United States starting in the 1940s. The initial catalyst for this movement was the 1940 ballet, The Nutcracker. However, the bigger factor came with Americas entrance into World War II. Hundreds of thousands of American soldiers would end up serving in Europe during the war and were exposed to nutcracker dolls in the process. Unlike other places, nutcrackers that made it into American culture rarely had a functional purpose and were almost always for decoration only.
