Catch him while you can! The warm, cozy delight of sweet baked treats is a hallmark of the Canadian winter holidays. This finely crafted coin of 99.99% pure silver captures forever the sprightly joy of a holiday classic: the gingerbread man.
This $20 coin is 99.99% pure silver, with a nominal metal weight of 7.96 grams and a diameter of 27 millimetres. The reverse design by Canadian agency Three Degrees Creative Group features a smiling gingerbread man sliding down a snowy hillside. Arms raised, holding aloft a big candy cane in his left hand, the gingerbread man carves a path through the snow as he slides. The tree-lined hilltop rises above and behind him and snow seems to spray out before him, lending the image exceptional depth and movement. The reverse is engraved with the text “FINE SILVER 9999 ARGENT PUR”, “CANADA”, “20 DOLLARS” and the date “2015”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
Just like the folkloric figure, this limited-mintage gingerbread man is sure to go quickly! Makes a unique and thoughtful holiday gift for children and adults alike, and an excellent addition to any collection featuring Canadian, holiday, or folklore themes.
