This large format 35 mm collector issue 50 cent coin captures the magic of the winter season with the illusion of full motion created through lenticular imagery. Tilt your coin up and down, and watch as the children move their arms and legs to create impressions of angels in the snow.  A fresh snowfall transforms the world into an unblemished canvas of infinite potential. A fun, timeless way to enjoy our Canadian winter, the act of creating snow angels brings a twinkle to the eye of Canadians; few can resist the urge to leave their artistic imprint on the landscape by falling, limbs outstretched, onto winter's blanket as depicted in this stunning lenticular keepsake.

The Design:

The reverse design by Canadian artist Joel Kimmel captures two children engaged in the winter tradition of creating snow angels. There’s a timeless feel to the vibrantly coloured image, in which an old-fashioned wooden toboggan on the left conveys the spirit of play that pervades this outdoor setting. Under the watchful eyes of a snowman in the top right corner, and their canine companion in the bottom left corner, two children are lying down on their backs to create angelic silhouettes in the snow. They are all smiles in their brightly coloured winter garb as they swish their outstretched arms up and down while swinging their legs from side to side—an effect that is recreated through the use of motion technology, which seamlessly creates the illusion of continuous movement as the coin is tilted from side to side. The energy is infectious as the family dog joins in by mimicking the children’s movements, as the sweep of its tail from one side to the other leaves its own unique imprint in the snow.
