Description

This 2019 $3 pure silver coin features a little holiday magic. In Canada, December is a time for traditions old and new, and one of them is selecting the perfect Christmas tree—as seen on this coin. Bundling up against the cold, the entire family heads out into the countryside that shimmers after the first snowfall. Songs are sung and stories are told while everyone looks for the future centre piece of their holiday celebrations. Whether opting for a pre-cut or “cut-your-own” tree, the experience serves up a pine-scented dash of holiday spirit that will carry you into the new year. Mintage is limited to only 4,000. GST/HST exempt. 


The Design:

The reverse design by Steve Hepburn celebrates a fun holiday tradition in Canada. On a cold December day, a father has ventured outdoors with his two kids to select and cut down their Christmas tree. The chosen tree is placed on the sleigh as the three happily make their way home, accompanied by their pet dog. The image is framed by stylized icons that represent popular outdoor activities and sights in Canada: (clockwise from top) Niagara Falls; a Christmas tree; a rodeo; wine tasting; dogsledding; folk music; cherry blossoms; maple syrup tasting; whale watching; tulips; coastal drives; and the aurora borealis. The obverse features the year “2019” and face value “3 DOLLARS”, and the framed effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
