Special features:
  • Your coin recreates a touching scene of a family enjoying a fun activity together on a typical winter day in Canada.
  • RECREATES THE FEEL OF A LANDSCAPE! The tree line along the top of the hill has been meticulously engraved to recreate the feel of a landscape that is freshly covered with freshly-fallen snow.
  • Vibrant selective colour recreates the pure white of the powdery snow, providing a bright canvas for the vivid colours of the revellers' warm winter gear.
  • Your coin is crafted from 99.99% pure silver, is GST/HST exempt, and has a limited worldwide mintage.

About the Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Maurade Baynton, your coin captures the warmth and joy of family members enjoying an activity together in a winter scene. Freshly-fallen snow has created the perfect powdery tobogganing conditions on this hill, where families, friends and pets are taking the opportunity to enjoy time spent together. In the foreground, selective colour naturally draws the eye to a family of four dressed in their warmest snow gear, which adds bright colour to a carefully engraved landscape that would otherwise be dominated by wintry hues of whites and grey. With a scarf draped over his mouth and chin to protect against the cold wind, the youngest child sits at the front of the wooden toboggan; behind him, his rosy-cheeked sister lets out a gleeful shout as they slowly gather momentum. Mother and father sit at the rear where they excitedly look ahead with broad smiles, knowing the thrill that's to come. Even the family's pet terrier is in on the fun! In the background, others enjoy the same activity; all remain undaunted by the cold, for they know that any cold hands and cheeks will be warmed later by burning hearth-fires and hot cocoa.

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

        It is very colorful to look at. But the more you look at it the picture itself doesn't look real. Almost fake, as if a picture was just put on it. Doesn't look real enough, but is good for a child. They wouldn't see the specifics in the picture.
