A spoonful of ginger, a pinch of nutmeg and a dash of cinnamon… these are the spices that make the holidays nice. Our 2020 holiday coin serves up some festive magic with a Murano glass gingerbread man on a plateful of cookies for Santa! Shortbread, chocolate chip and more—these decorated treats are a sweet reminder of a holiday baking tradition that is a recipe for family fun. With the coin standing in for the plate, the colourful cookies will appeal to your sweet tooth and bring back memories of leaving milk and cookies out for the jolly old elf.
This Christmas coin will appeal to your sweet tooth!
Designed by artist Pandora Young, your holiday-themed coin resembles a plate filled with an assortment of cookies. An engraved festive motif captures the look of vintage tableware, like a special presentation dish reserved exclusively for the holidays. The festively shaped, iced cookies are colourfully highlighted and topped with a handcrafted gingerbread man made of Murano glass. The reverse includes the word “CANADA” and the date “2020”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
- ‘Tis the season for tradition. Our annual holiday coin is a nostalgia-filled celebration of the magic of the season, topped by a beautiful Murano glass element.
- Festive treats that are fun to make, share and eat. For 2020, a plate full of iced cookies brings back fun memories of holiday baking with loved ones, and the excitement of leaving milk and cookies out for Santa on Christmas Eve.
- Features Murano glass. Our smiling gingerbread man is made from colourful Murano glass using centuries-old techniques. Due to its handcrafted nature, no two Murano pieces are exactly alike, meaning no two coins are alike either.
