Special features:
  • EACH MURANO GLASS POINSETTIA IS UNIQUE! This Murano glass poinsettia was individually handcrafted by master glassmaker Vio Col Vetro of Murano, Italy with a sprinkling of gold foil for an added touch of holiday sparkle that will captivate long after the potted poinsettia has faded away.
  • 5 OUNCE PURE SILVER! Your coin is crafted from five ounces of 99.99% pure silver!
  • LARGE DIAMETER! Your $50 coin has a diameter of 65.25 mm! The ideal diameter for such a beautiful design to showcase the Murano glass poinsettia!
  • LOW MINTAGE! Limited to 1,500 coins worldwide.
  • GST/HST EXEMPT! Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

Design:

Canadian artist Marie-Élaine Cusson has created a beautiful and finely detailed backdrop to showcase this coin's beautiful Murano glass to full effect. Six deeply veined leaves frame the red glass poinsettia with sprigs of pine needles, ferns and holly berries filling the gaps to create a vibrant, festive feel—all punctuated by the shimmering gold foil embedded in the glass.

From Venice to Murano glass:
  • Murano's renowned glassmakers were originally located in Venice, but the constant threat of fire that could destroy the city's wooden buildings prompted officials to order their relocation to Murano 1.5 km away in 1291.
  • By the end of the 16th century, 43% of Murano's population was working in the glassmaking industry.
  • Most of the glass referred to as Venetian glass originates from Murano.
  • Murano's trade secrets were so carefully guarded that craftsmen were not allowed to leave the Republic. Despite the threat of death, some glassmakers did set up foundries in nearby cities, and as far away as England and the Netherlands.

Packaging:

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