This 7-Coin Mint Gift Set Is Literally Cool!
2011 Canada Holiday Gift Set with Snowflake quarter full package

This year's special edition holiday quarter features a lovely design of a unique snowflake, struck especially for this set! Not all snowflakes are created equal. If it is very cold, they will fall as "dry" powder. They may also take the shape of slender hexagonal columns that look like tiny wooden pencils under the microscope. The iconic star-shape people adore will only occur when the temperature is around 5° F (-15° C) and the ice crystal can grow large and drift gently earthward without hitting any other crystals. They are typically hexagonally symmetrical and form only in certain below-freezing temperature atmospheric conditions. This simple yet dry definition belies the complex splendor of the incredible snowflake, a true miracle of nature.
