Product Description

A scene of serene beauty, traditionally engraved, as a town slumbers snugly after winter's first snowfall!

A sleepy, snow-covered town slumbers in the deep of night. Winter’s first snow has just fallen. Perhaps the townspeople, tucked up in their cozy houses, dream of the coming holidays? Or maybe their heads dance with visions of days filled with skating, sledding, and wintry adventures! This limited edition, traditional winter scene (with only 8,000 coins available worldwide!) will appeal to lovers of winter, fans of the simplicity of rural life, and art aficionados seeking the work of talented, practicing artists. The scene shows a charming rural town slumbering peacefully after winter's first snowfall. Two holly boughs with green leaves and red berries sets off the scene.

Wintertown - The scene shows a charming rural town slumbering peacefully after winter's first snowfall. Two holly boughs with green leaves and red berries sets off the scene.Snugly Snowed In!
All across North America, in quiet towns just like this one, winter awakens people’s spirit of fun and community. Who can resist the allure of gliding on the local skating pond or night-lit rink? Sledding, sliding, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling…even when winter whips up its deepest snows and chilliest winds, nothing can keep Americans from the joys of a pristine, snow-covered hill or a freshly cleared patch of ice. A hot cocoa cradled in mittened hands, the promise of a crackling fire - these are the hallmarks of winter in North American!

Artists have long celebrated the inviting appeal of a snow-covered small town after the first snowfall. Painters and sculptors have captured it, songwriters have immortalized it, writers have evoked its many charms. An enduring image, it remains cradled deep in the American soul.
