Who says you have to spend a snow day inside! Once precipitation slows and the winds die down, Canadians of all ages can’t help but marvel at the frozen wonderland around them. Everywhere you look, the once-familiar landscape seems completely altered by a thick blanket of freshly fallen snow. It’s a breathtaking sight; it’s also a key ingredient for some winter fun for all ages, courtesy of Mother Nature! Creative spirits soar as the pristine snow is gathered, rolled, stacked and packed on to build the perfect snowman. Add on a hat, some buttons and a carrot nose, and your winter character practically comes to life! It’s a timeless and whimsical way to celebrate the joys of Canada’s coldest season while making the most of a bright winter day.

Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Steve Hepburn, your coin presents a contemporary reinterpretation of a classic winter scene. The view from above allows for a more playful perspective, as two Canadian youth make the most of a snow day by building a snowman. Geometric shapes and the deliberate choice of colours add elements of modern design; and yet, they evoke a strong sense of nostalgia—especially in the concentric circles that form four evergreen trees, whose swirled appearances are reminiscent of lollipops! Using cool-toned colours and engraving to convey bright light and shadows, this layered design radiates with a light-hearted spirit that is also reflected in the shadow engraved on the coin’s silver surface.

Did you know…
  • Building a snowman has long been a winter tradition around the world—anywhere!
  • Your building material must have the right moisture content! Powder snow may be ideal for skiing but it doesn’t tend to stick together very well; on the other end of the spectrum, melting snow or slush is often too watery to hold a shape.
  • One of Canada’s tallest “snow”men resides year-round in Beardmore, Ontario. While it’s not really made of snow, the smiling, roadside landmark does measure more than 10 metres high!

Packaging:

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