Based on an original painting - a perfect keepsake for skaters of all ages.

From our first glide across the ice, we’re hooked. Faster than our feet alone can carry us, we chase, explore, and spend laughing moments with our friends and family. There will be bumps, bruises, and wobbly knees, but before we know it, the hands once occupied in helping us up off the ice will clap as we glide along unaided. Inspired by his own daughter’s experience, these were the moments Douglas R. Laird had in mind when he painted the delightful scene captured on this coin; enjoying fond family memories and encouraging young dreamers to follow their passion.

While ice skating has been a favourite winter pastime in Canada for hundreds of years, figure skating has grown as a Canadian passion over the last century. The power, grace, and beauty of ice dancers, pairs, and solo skaters ignite the imagination and inspire thousands of children each year to participate in one of the country’s many world-class skating programs.

A thoughtful gift for the young skater in your life or to celebrate a special occasion! Order yours today!

Design:

Your coin features a full-colour painted and engraved scene of a family skating on a frozen pond. Based on an original painting by Laird, the design centres on a mother, father, son, and daughter attired in outdoor clothing, laced into their skates, and accompanied by two dogs. Standing on a frozen pond with a tree-lined residential area and bridge visible in the background, the mother, father, and boy watch the young girl raise her arms like a graceful figure skater. The young boy holds his hockey stick as he watches his sister. Large snowflakes fall gently around the family.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with black beauty box.

Comments about 1 oz. Fine Silver Coin - Ice Dancer - Mintage: 7000 (2015):

I was intrigued by this coin as it is so Canadian, unique and beautiful. I took the chance and purchased it online. When I received it, I realized it's more stunning viewing it in person, and the online picture doesn't let you see just how beautiful this piece is! The silver relief background on the face of the coin is rather'shimmer'n-glow'in appearance, so along with the more matte texture of the colours - it makes this one beautiful silver piece of art. I intend to enjoy this coin as a 'bezelled pendant', and wear it this winter!

      One piece heirloom that I would like to pass on to my daughter to remind her the days that me and my husband took her to practice figure skating when she was as young as the little girl on this beautiful coin.

          The coins that I purchase have a very personal, or sentimental meaning. They are not necessarily bought for their future value, but usually have a historical meaning.

              It's a beautiful coin, very well done, a great display for everyday. This coin has a lot of detail in the back ground and all around a wonderful picture of a family outing in the winter on a frozen pond.
              It's a picture that brings happiness and joy to almost anyone that loves the Canadian outdoors?
