The jingle of bells, the patter of hooves—these are the sounds many children yearn to hear each Christmas Eve. This pure silver coin rekindles that sense of wonder and enchantment. The colourful clarity of Murano glass lends itself beautifully to recreating one of Santa's reindeer in outstanding detail. Pulling the toy-laden sleigh from rooftop to rooftop on a snowy night, our glass reindeer is the perfect reminder that magic is in the air during this festive season.

An ideal Christmas present this winter holiday! Order your coin today!

Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Anna Bucciarelli, your coin takes to the skies on Christmas Eve to capture the magic of the holiday season! The snow-blanketed setting below features colour over engraving that re-creates mountains, tall evergreens and a row of homes. As night falls, indoor lighting casts a warm glow from within, while just beyond a front door lies a snowman that hints at the presence of children. But the viewer's gaze naturally gravitates towards the "sky" that fills most of the field, where precision-engraved snowflakes are as unique and intricate as their real-life counterparts. Laden with toys and gifts, Santa's red and gold-coloured sleigh makes its way through this gentle snowfall, pulled by an exquisite Murano glass reindeer. The colourful reindeer-shaped piece is handcrafted by Italian glassmakers, and is unique to each coin. The reverse also features the engraved word "CANADA", the year "2018" and the face value "20 DOLLARS".

Did you know…
  • Aside from Rudolph, can you name Santa's eight original reindeer? They were first introduced in the 1823 poem A Visit From St. Nicholas (more commonly known as ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas), credited to Clement Clarke Moore. They are: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen.
  • Rudolph was introduced in a children's book published in 1939, but became one of Santa's most famous reindeer after the release of the 1949 Christmas song—now a beloved holiday standard!
  • "Donner" and "Blitzen" are of German origin, meaning "thunder" and "lightning" (respectively)—but that's not quite how these two reindeer were originally known. When the poem was originally published in 1823, their names were "Dunder" and "Blixem"—two Dutch words meaning "thunder" and "lightning." This was changed to "Donder and Blitzen" in 1844, and finally "Donner and Blitzen" in the 1949 song that made Rudolph famous.
  • Check your pockets: there's a "reindeer" on one of Canada's circulation coins! Reindeer are more commonly referred to as "caribou" in North America. With a few exceptions, Canada's 25-cent coin has typically featured Rangifer tarandus on its reverse since 1937, when Emanuel Hahn's caribou design was first introduced.

Packaging:

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

I usually buy a Christmas coin for my grandchild every year which is usually a kids scene but around the $30 range. The one I selected this year was the same idea but fancier & more money. I also didn't understand why it was showing 2018 when it was for Christmas 2017.

I love all the Christmas coins that remind me of when I was a little kid. The reindeer on this coin should have a black or red nose...white doesn't make any sense. I would have changed it. I have never seen a whited nosed reindeer....

why this coin is dated 2018 and not Christmas 2017. Please confirm, many thanks.

Ottawa Sunshine

This coin is dated 2018 because it will be available for purchase in 2018, and we are hoping to appeal to more customers on a longer selling period of time.

The series of Holiday murano-glass coins started in 2013 and continued to 2014 but in the next year the coin came out as 2016 instead of 2015. Since then, the coins have followed the year as being for the next calendar year of the actual year of the holiday, so 2016 represented 2015, 2017 represented 2016 and 2018 represents 2017. I don't know why the mint skipped the year 2015 on the coin. There is an inconsistency in the numbering.
