The Snow Maiden is a well-known character in Russian folklore and a classic image for the holidays. As the granddaughter and helper of Father Frost, she is ready to bring magic to the season. The Snow Maiden coin comes beautifully presented in two nesting doll wooden presentation cases. These decorated “dolls with a secret” have been popular since they first appeared in Moscow in the 1890’s. The oval shaped coin features a mix of various frostings and icy colours to create a freezing winter atmosphere. The limited mintage serial number appears engraved on the edge of the coin.
