Wherever a snow crystal lands, its delicate form is as ethereal as it is enchanting — and the “icy” crystal on this coin’s reverse is no exception. Snow crystals — like the intricate stellar dendrite that landed on this 1 oz. 99.99% pure silver coin — are beautifully varied and unique. No two snow crystals are exactly alike, but most of them have six points or sides, which inspired the Royal Canadian Mint’s newest coin shape: a hexagon coin. Its six-sided outline perfectly complements the six-armed snow crystal first Snowflake coin, which is adorned with a clear crystal that mimics winter’s magical sparkle.
A six-sided coin — a first for the Royal Canadian Mint. The Mint’s first hexagon coin introduces a six-sided shape that perfectly complements the six-armed snow crystal on its reverse.
