Last year's lenticular holiday coin sold out! Hurry and order yours today!

The magic of the holidays often lies in the traditions that create some of our most treasured memories. And for many Canadians, the selection of a Christmas tree is as much of a time-honoured tradition as decorating one! This stylized lenticular coin follows one tree's journey from the outdoors to an indoor setting, where it plays a central role in one family's joyous holiday celebrations.

A perfect holiday gift or stocking stuffer! Order yours today!

Special features:
•   The eighth issue in our annual series of holiday lenticular coins.
•   This 2014 coin features a more stylized and modern image of a cherished holiday tradition than those featured on previous coins in the series.
•   ENHANCED 3D EFFECT: The two-image lenticular design follows one tree's journey from a wintry outdoor setting to its transformation as the centrepiece for one family's Christmas celebrations. The 3D-effect has been enhanced over last year's!
•   The use of cool colours in the first image conveys the cold of the winter landscape, while the second image features bright, vibrant colours – a visual representation of the excitement that fills the air during the holidays!
•   Makes for the perfect holiday gift or stocking stuffer for a loved one!

Design:
Your coin features a dual image which, based on the angle at which it is viewed from, alternates between two modern, stylized holiday images by Canadian artist Steve Hepburn. The first image makes use of the cool colours of blue and violet to set the tone for a wintery scene: soft snowflakes drifting down from the twinkling night sky onto the forest below. Flanked by two smaller trees, one evergreen stands prominently in the centre of the image field. As the coin is angled, lenticular technology cleverly causes the images to switch. The tree occupies the same central position but in the second image, the viewer is transported indoors where the tree has now become one family's Christmas tree. The shining moon from the first image is replaced by the glowing star-shaped tree topper, as two young girls adorn the tree with the last few ornaments. There is energy in the air as the children take part in this cherished holiday tradition, undoubtedly awaiting the moment when they can unwrap the neatly wrapped gifts that are at their feet. The vibrant colours of red, green and yellow offer a visual representation of the warmth and energy that fill the air during the holiday season.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a protect sleeve.

              Bought this for my son who collects coins. Very pretty coin, love the switch between daytime and nighttime when you move the coin. Very nice.

                    I like to give my grandchildren something special for Christmas, and this fits that occasion. Nice design, age appropriate, good price. Hopefully this will spark an interest in coins.
