Add a little holiday magic (and colour) to your collection.

No matter our age, many of us would love to catch a glimpse of Santa Claus and his reindeer-powered sleigh, as they complete their round-the-world trip each Christmas Eve. Both Santa and one of his reindeer bring the magic to this fine silver coin, but the engraving also includes a hidden colour element that will really get you into the holiday spirit—simply view the design under a black light (included), and the effect will fill you with a childlike sense of awe and wonder.

BLACK LIGHT FLASHLIGHT INCLUDED
The engraving is captivating in natural light, but for the full viewing experience, view the coin’s reverse under a black light (included)—this will activate the technology and unlock the hidden features.
The Royal Canadian Mint spreads some holiday cheer on the obverse, too, where a Christmas tree pattern appears behind the effigy.
DID YOU KNOW?
- The 1823 poem A Visit from St. Nicholas (also known as ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas) first told us that Santa’s sleigh was pulled by “eight tiny reindeer.”
DESIGN & ARTIST
Each coin features a festive reverse design by artist Lisa Thomson-Khan, whose depiction of Santa Claus and one of his reindeer captures some of the magic of the holiday season. When the design is viewed under black light, colourful lights illuminate the snow-covered trees. The obverse features a tree background pattern and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
“This was a fun one to engrave! Unlike designs based on vectors and geometrics, this one had lots of organic elements and flowing shapes, and a stylized art style that lends itself well to free-hand sculpting. The holidays are such a wonderful time, I loved working on a coin that captures some of the wonder and magic of the season.” SAMANTHA STRATH, ENGRAVER
“This coin instantly brings back childhood memories of Christmas. I’m reminded of joyful traditions, past and present, but it’s the colour reveal that truly gives this coin that special touch of holiday magic.” MELANIE LUIS, PRODUCT MANAGER
Each coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a colourful beauty box.
