The season of glimmering, glistening lights is here, and this breathtaking coin captures the stunning beauty of a vintage tree ornament using 21st century innovations. This 2018 $25 one ounce fine silver coin is uniquely shaped to echo the curve of those early glass balls, punctuated with a Swarovski® crystal. The chiseled indentations are a 19th-century invention to reflect candlelight—a design so enduring that anyone who decorated a tree, mantle or table into the 1960s will have fond memories of unpacking these beautiful heirlooms each year. Mintage is limited to just 5,500. HST/GST exempt.
The design by Canadian artist Calder Moore has recreated the incredible beauty of a vintage tree ornament to remarkable effect. A multi-layered ring of chiseled indentations dominates the centre of the coin, with a Holiday-red Swarovski® crystal glistening in the middle. Classic elements such as frosted stripes, snowflakes and delicately curved lines, dots and petals, complete the design.
