It’s a magical moment that many look forward to each year—the moment the CP Holiday Train comes rolling in! This lenticular coin captures the thrill of an annual tradition that raises spirits and raises funds to help those in need. Decked out in colourful lights and festive decorations, the CP Holiday Train is greeted by smiling crowds at every stop, where music and community spirit come together for a whistle-stop concert that benefits local food banks— even when the show must go online.
The reverse design features lenticular technology that fuses two colour images and provides a smooth, seamless transition whenever the coin is tilted. The first image shows the CP Holiday Train in daylight and provides a view of the festively decorated locomotive as it journeys across Canada. The second image offers a nighttime view that captures the excitement of seeing the train pull into a community, its locomotive and cars lit up by hundreds of thousands of lights. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
