Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Anna Bucciarelli, your coin takes to the skies on Christmas Eve to capture the magic of the holiday season! The snow-blanketed setting below features colour over engraving that re-creates mountains, tall evergreens and a row of homes. As night falls, indoor lighting casts a warm glow from within, while just beyond a front door lies a snowman that hints at the presence of children. But the viewer's gaze naturally gravitates towards the "sky" that fills most of the field, where precision-engraved snowflakes are as unique and intricate as their real-life counterparts. Laden with toys and gifts, Santa's red and gold-coloured sleigh makes its way through this gentle snowfall, pulled by an exquisite Murano glass reindeer. The colourful reindeer-shaped piece is handcrafted by Italian glassmakers, and is unique to each coin. The reverse also features the engraved word "CANADA", the year "2018" and the face value "20 DOLLARS".

Did you know…
  • Aside from Rudolph, can you name Santa's eight original reindeer? They were first introduced in the 1823 poem A Visit From St. Nicholas (more commonly known as ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas), credited to Clement Clarke Moore. They are: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen.
  • Rudolph was introduced in a children's book published in 1939, but became one of Santa's most famous reindeer after the release of the 1949 Christmas song—now a beloved holiday standard!
  • "Donner" and "Blitzen" are of German origin, meaning "thunder" and "lightning" (respectively)—but that's not quite how these two reindeer were originally known. When the poem was originally published in 1823, their names were "Dunder" and "Blixem"—two Dutch words meaning "thunder" and "lightning." This was changed to "Donder and Blitzen" in 1844, and finally "Donner and Blitzen" in the 1949 song that made Rudolph famous.
  • Check your pockets: there's a "reindeer" on one of Canada's circulation coins! Reindeer are more commonly referred to as "caribou" in North America. With a few exceptions, Canada's 25-cent coin has typically featured Rangifer tarandus on its reverse since 1937, when Emanuel Hahn's caribou design was first introduced.

Packaging:

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