Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Claudio D’Angelo, your coin centres on three red enamelled pillar candles in candle holders. The central candle is the tallest and is flanked by a slightly shorter candle on its right and an even shorter candle on its left. All three candles are coloured with red enamel—a technical feature that requires specialized engraving to ensure that the enamel spreads and sets accurately within the image. The three candles are lit, glow lines emanating brightly from their flames. They sit in identical footed candle holders specially engraved to appear to cast a burnished glow of their own. The candles are set against a background featuring two large pinecones—the one on the left lying on its side and the one on the right standing upright—and a decorative bough of soft pine needle sprigs.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell case lined with flock and protected by a beautiful Holiday graphic beauty box enhanced with spot glitter varnish.
