AN ANNUAL FAVOURITE! Our holiday coin looks at the magic of an old-fashioned Christmas! Order today!

An opening note, a flickering flame, a pine or cinnamon scent in the air—the tiniest details can suddenly evoke warm memories of the holiday season. It’s the loveliest trick our senses can play on us, warming our hearts and turning our thoughts to the friends, family and traditions we love. Thinking back on holidays past, one can almost see the wreath above the mantle and feel the warmth of a fire during a magical time that lives within us always. It is a sentiment that is beautifully embodied by our 2019 holiday coin, featuring selective colour and a Murano glass piece that is the crowning glory of our holiday tribute to yesteryear.

Design:

Designed by artist Marie-Élaine Cusson, the reverse steps back in time to capture the heart-warming magic of an old-fashioned family Christmas. A roaring fire in the stone-lined fireplace conjures a feeling of warmth and coziness, while an extraordinary holiday wreath “hangs” on the brick wall above the mantle. Uniquely handcrafted by glassmakers Giorgio and Bernardino Vio of Murano, Italy, the bright green wreath complements the coloured tree, whose traditional mix of decorations, flowers, bows and ribbon garland culminate in a star-shaped topper. The brightly wrapped gifts and a bow on the wooden rocking horse hint at an exhilarating moment of discovery to come—a moment that is at the heart of many memories of holidays past. The reverse also features the engraved word “CANADA” and the year “2019”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • Wreaths were as a symbol of victory in ancient Rome, but the holiday tradition of hanging a wreath is believed to date back to the 16th century.
  • A wreath is also a symbol of eternity since the circular shape has no discernable beginning or end.
  • Another holiday wreath, the Advent wreath is decorated with candles that are lit each week in December.

Packaging:

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