A magical sight for all ages! Spread holiday cheer with this interactive coin that is sure to put a smile on everyone’s face. Surrounded by engraved snowflakes and a gold-plated holiday garland, a picturesque winter village cast in sterling silver rises up from the centre of your 5 oz. pure silver coin. It is an enchanting scene that evokes the magic of Christmas Eve—especially when you tilt the coin to make Santa and his reindeer fly!

Our latest 3D movement coin features a special visit from Santa! Order today!

Special features:
  • NEW MOVEMENT COIN! Celebrate the magic of Christmas with our latest interactive design, which features Santa Claus and his flying reindeer.
  • SILVER AND GOLD (PLATING)! Silver and gold are a classic holiday colour scheme, and on this coin, they create a luxurious colour contrast. Selective gold plating highlights the rim on both sides of your coin, as well as the effigy on the obverse and the retro-inspired garland engraved on the reverse.
  • A MINIATURE CHRISTMAS VILLAGE! Your coin’s reverse features two elements cast in sterling silver (92.5% pure): a picture-perfect winter village as a 3D centrepiece; and Santa’s gravity-activated sleigh—tilt the coin and watch him fly around the village. Upon closer inspection, you’ll discover an incredible array of carefully sculpted details on both elements.
  • 5 OZ. OF PURE SILVER! Crafted in 5 oz. of 99.99% pure silver, your coin’s large diameter (65 mm) provides ample space for engraved snowflakes and snowdrifts that perfectly complement the snow-covered village centrepiece. And it’s all framed by a dazzling holiday garland composed of vintage-inspired elements—sleigh bells, classic Christmas toys, candy canes and more!
  • PREVIOUS COINS SOLD OUT! This is our fourth movement coin, but only our second holiday-themed one. All previous coins sold out, and this one is sure to be one of the most admired pieces in your collection.
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.

Design:
Designed by RCM Engraver Ryan Poser, your coin’s reverse features a winter village centrepiece cast in sterling silver. Rising up from the snowflakes and snow piles engraved around its base, the 3D village is covered in a blanket of freshly fallen snow. All is still on this Christmas Eve as residents await a visit from Santa Claus, who appears in the sky; cast in sterling silver and activated by gravity, Santa’s reindeer-led sleigh flies around the village whenever the coin is tilted. Selective gold plating adds colour to the rim and to the magnificent holiday garland that surrounds this magical scene. The obverse features a maple leaf field pattern and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

“Getting the opportunity to design and sculpt my own coin is a great honour, and a three-dimensional movement coin gave me lots to work with. On a technical level, it’s always a challenge to create a detailed model that holds up to the casting process at this scale—all the elements have to be recognisable from a distance, but you also need details that stand out when you get up close and take it all in. From an artist’s perspective, I really wanted to capture the magic of Christmas Eve, complete with sparkling snowflakes and snowdrifts that blanket the village where children are anticipating a visit from Santa and his reindeer.” – Ryan Poser, Artist/Engraver

Did you know?
  • Each year on Christmas Eve (Dec. 24), North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) uses its aerospace technology to track Santa’s flight path during his annual delivery run. It’s a tradition that began in 1955, when a child attempted to call Santa but accidentally dialled the phone number for Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD), the predecessor to NORAD.
  • We’re used to seeing images of Santa Claus with a white beard and a red suit, but he had a few different looks prior to the 20th century. We only found out about his chimney delivery method in 1809, and it was the 1822 poem, “The Night Before Christmas” (originally titled “A Visit from St. Nicholas”), that first revealed the names of his flying reindeer.

Packaging
Your coin is elegantly presented in a domed case with a Royal Canadian Mint-branded wooden base, and packaged in a black beauty box.
