With vibrant colours that oppose their delicate nature, glass holiday ornaments shine and sparkle as brightly as the twinkle in a holiday reveller’s eyes! It’s all part of the magic of the holidays, which is embodied by this fine silver coin; the ultra high relief engraving and rich festive colouring create a breathtaking keepsake that will add everlasting holiday sparkle to your collection for years to come.
The reverse design features the timeless beauty of a stylized, circular holiday ornament; produced in ultra high relief, the quadruple-struck design features a remarkable depth and dimension that evoke the look and feel of the spherical shaped ornaments. Set against a festive-coloured red background, meticulously detailed swirls form a scroll pattern that surrounds the deeply indented pointed petals of a stylized blossom. Tiny dots add a magical raised quality, as they seem to radiate from the dotted centre and outward through each of the indented petals of alternating sizes; eight orange-coloured petals elegantly complement the intricate artwork, as they lie ensconced within scrolls along the edge of the image field.
Each coin boasts unique surface qualities that were achieved through the remarkable artistry and craftsmanship of the Royal Canadian Mint’s engravers. The raised scroll pattern brings added depth to the centre pattern, with an overall three-dimensional effect that evokes the spherical dimensions of a classic glass ornament.
