What better way to admire the splendours of Canada's winter wonderland than with an old-fashioned sleigh ride! This fine silver coin with Murano glass celebrates the beauty of the season with a timeless scene that stirs up memories of sleigh bells, songs, and laughter among the snow-covered trees.
The reverse design by Canadian artist Tony Bianco features a traditional Canadian winter scene in all of its tranquil beauty. As the countryside slumbers beneath a blanket of freshly fallen snow, three people venture out into the crisp morning air to enjoy a sleigh ride. Finely detailed engraving captures the intricacies of the horse-drawn sleigh and its occupants; positioned to the left side of the coin, they move through the pristine snow in front of a wooden cabin, where a plume of smoke from the chimney offers the promise of a warm fire upon their return. The grove of pines surrounds them like crystal spires, with the green colours of their branches barely visible beneath the bright white snow cover. In the centre of this scene is a breathtaking Murano glass tree that has been handcrafted by master glass makers Giorgio and Bernardino Vio of Murano, Italy; this embellishment's delicate beauty perfectly conveys the shimmering, crystal-like qualities of the snow and ice that dominate the landscape.No two glass trees are alike-your coin will truly be unique! Take a sleigh ride down memory lane with this beautiful coin that depicts a traditional Canadian winter scene. Soft colours and intricate engraving recreate the wintry landscape in incredible detail, creating a stunning backdrop for the delicate beauty of a Venetian glass tree. A wonderfully artistic reminder of some of the season's time-honoured traditions, and the joyous times spent outdoors with family and friends! A timeless, memory-filled addition to your collection, or a cherished gift to share your memories of winters past. Composition: 99.99% pure silver. Packaging: Maroon clamshell with black beauty box.
