In original RCM packaging. When the dark, cold winter descends upon Canadians, like true northerners we turn to the warmth of festive traditions. Celebrate the joy of the holiday season with this exquisite painted silver coin bearing a lovely Venetian glass snowman. Your beautifully designed and exquisitely engraved fine silver coin features an original winter scene including a three-dimensional Venetian glass snowman created by master glass makers in Murano, Italy, Vio col vetro. Venetian glass is prized around the world for its clear, vibrant colours. Because it is handcrafted by skilled artisans, each glass snowman on your coin is unique. An excellent addition to any collection featuring coloured coins, holiday-themed coins, and unique pieces of art. Your coin features a festive outdoor Canadian holiday scene that bears all of the key hallmarks of the Canadian winter holiday season. This outdoor evening scene centres around an adorable white glass snowman with an orange carrot nose, red buttons, a black top hat, and a green scarf. The snowman sits on a gently sloping snow-covered yard. To the left of the snowman is a lovely evergreen tree decked out with multi-coloured ornaments, white garland, and bright lights. A pair of old-fashioned skates lies at the base of the tree. In front of the snowman and tree, a gently curving ice path leads back to a warmly lit, snow-covered log cabin on the right side of the image. Across the path from the snowman, the corner of a wood bench is visible under a heap of snow where a red mug of cocoa has been left behind. The scene, which looks uphill toward the night sky beyond the horizon, is dotted with bare deciduous trees and glimmering crystalline snowflakes falling from the sky. Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with black beauty box. Composition – fine silver (99.99% pure). Weight (g) – 31.39. Diameter (mm) – 38.
