Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Joel Kimmel, your coin revisits a magical, light-hearted moment as two children engage in the winter tradition of creating snow angels! There's a timeless feel to the vibrantly coloured image, in which an old-fashioned wooden toboggan on the left conveys the spirit of play that pervades this outdoor setting. Under the watchful eyes of a snowman in the top right corner, and their canine companion in the bottom left corner, two children are lying down on their backs to create angelic silhouettes in the snow. They are all smiles in their brightly coloured winter garb as they swish their outstretched arms up and down while swinging their legs from side to side—an effect that is recreated through the use of motion technology, which seamlessly creates the illusion of continuous movement as the coin is tilted from side to side. The energy is infectious as the family dog joins in by mimicking the children's movements, as the sweep of its tail from one side to the other leaves its own unique imprint in the snow.

Packaging:

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

        Comments about 3D Snow Angels (2016):

        These unique holiday coins lack one thing and that is the custom graphic packaging instead of a plain black packaging.

        The outside sleeve should reflect the image of what is inside and the year of issue should be on it as well.

        I have questioned the RCM many times about this and their response has been: "The reason for the black sleeves is that the surprise lies on the inside to discover"! I don't think that is a great response.

        These special edition holiday coins would sell much faster if the "surprise" were on the outside. Drowning in a sea of black sleeves in a plastic container does not make these coins special at all.

        The magic of this holiday coin should be seen on the outside as well. "A picture is always worth a thousand words"! Maybe, RCM should charge a dollar more for the holiday custom packaging because right now I have stopped buying these for this simple reason.

          I have all the holiday lenticular coins and this one was instantly my new favourite. It's theme is reminiscent of my own childhood happy memories of making snow angels on crisp clean snow. The design itself is clean and the lenticular details are clear and easy to discern. A lovely and affordable little keepsake to pass on. Well done.
