Creating something unique is never a challenge for the Royal Canadian Mint, which is surprising considering how many different coin collections they already offer. They have done it again with the 2017 Proof Canadian Snow-Covered Tree 1 oz Silver Coin, which is now available for purchase through Provident Metals.
The harsh winters of Canada often overshadow the beauty that lies within all of the snow and cold weather. These coins honor the beauty of winter that is often forgotten with a beautiful, unique piece of Venetian glass in the shape of a tree on the reverse face of the coins.
Queen Elizabeth IIs portrait is featured on the obverse of all Canadian coinage. This image was created by Susanna Blunt, a Canadian artist, in 2003. The Queens image has been used on Canadian coinage since she was crowned back in 1952. She is now the longest-reigning monarch in the history of Great Britain.
The reverse side of these coins showcases a Murano glass tree. Created by master glassmakers Giorgio and Bernardino Vio of Murano, Italy specifically for use on these coins. In addition to the glass piece, you can also see pine trees covered in snow. There is even a horse-drawn sleigh and a cabin in the background.
The glass pieces vary slightly from coin to coin. This is because they are handmade. Each coin is unique due to this glass feature.
The Royal Canadian Mint was opened in 1908 to give Canada the ability to mint their own independent coinage. The first location was opened in Ottawa, Ontario, and a secondary facility was opened in Winnipeg, later on, to help meet the increasing demand for the beautiful coins the mint puts out each year.
