When it comes to symbols that represent Canada, the snowflake could be a close second to the maple leaf. From its snow-capped Rocky Mountains and snow-lined streets of its cities, Canada is known around the world for its winters. But just as no two snowflakes are identical, no two regions of Canada have the same experience when it comes to snow. Just close your eyes and remember the first snowstorm of the season blowing icy crystals through a dark, starless night sky, this is exactly what this unique coin reflects to all those who enjoy winter and the unique gift the sky has to offer.
Your coin has a limited mintage, gorgeously embedded with Swarovski® crystals, and a beautiful artistic rendering of a snowstorm. Your friends will admire and appreciate this popular coin all year round!
• Sixth coin in the series. Some coins in previous years have sold-out!
• Your coin includes a Swarovski® crystal that adds to the coin’s beauty.
• Fine silver (99.99% pure).
• GST/HST exempt.
Your coin re-creates a single large snowflake, its six delicate arms engraved in exceptional detail. The heart of the snowflake is embedded with a clear snowflake shape Swarovski crystal element. This coin is engraved with the word “Canada” and the year “2012.”
