08 Dec 2017  Fri

Winter is here and it is already snowing. Take out your Skiing gears, ice-skates, gloves and fleece jackets and get ready to play! Or are you more comfortable with staying back at home snuggled by a fireplace with a hot mug of coffee or chocolate?

Well...it doesn’t matter which you prefer, as celebrating the chilly holiday season is going to be very beautiful now with this holiday bundle of two snowflake coins!

The bundle contains two coins one issued in 2015 and the other a 2018 issue. The 2015 coin depicts the “Holiday Reindeer” designed by Canadian artist Lisa Thomson-Khan. There are three snowflake-shaped Swarovski® crystals that add a sparkle to the coin along with the white snowflakes falling gently upon the slumbering landscape. There are two round yellow Swarovski® crystals that hang from the reindeer's harnesses.

2018 struck “Ice Crystals” coin designed by Canadian artist Don Komarechka, sports an outdoor scene on a typical winter day. The coin depicts different shapes and sizes of snow crystals that may be found in nature, depending on atmospheric conditions. Blue sparkle enamel captures the icy beauty of this 99.99% pure silver proof coin.

The reverses of both coins feature "CANADA", the year “2015”, "2018" respectively, and the face value "20 DOLLARS". The obverse features the effigy of HM Queen Elizabeth II.

Isn’t this 2-coin bundle a wonderful holiday gift to place under the tree for a loved one? Go on...grab one!
