Description

This 2018 $50 pure silver coin combines an impressive five ounce fine silver format, intricate engraving work, and a large hand made Murano glass element to create a spectacular collectable appropriately called “Holiday Splendour”.  The crimson Murano glass poinsettia at the centre of the coin is set against an engraved background featuring six deeply veined leaves which frame the holiday flower with sprigs of pine needles, ferns and holly berries filling the gaps to create a vibrant, festive feel—all punctuated by the shimmering gold foil embedded in the glass.  Mintage is limited to just 1,500 pieces. HST/GST exempt.     


The Design:

Murano glass dates back to 8th century Rome. At the time, glass was a luxury reserved strictly for the rich, and glassmakers enjoyed the same status as the aristocracy. This glass poinsettia has all the prestige that makes Murano one of the greatest glass producers of the world. Its delicate and airy form was individually blown with a sprinkling of gold foil for an added touch of Holiday sparkle. Shimmering from the surface of this extra-large coin, this breathtaking flower will captivate long after the potted poinsettia has faded away. As each Murano glass poinsettia has been fashioned by hand, every coin is unique.
