Product Description

A beautiful glass Poinsettia flower, in vibrant, translucent red hues, and made of hand blown Murano Venetian glass, presides over a meticulously engraved holiday arrangement composed of holly berries, sprigs of pine needles, and ferns on this simply stunning, 5 troy ounce pure silver proof!

In combining the hand-blown beauty of Murano Venetian glass with its unique colorization process, the Royal Canadian Mint has created a masterpiece! Canadian artist Marie-Élaine Cusson has created a beautiful and finely detailed backdrop to showcase this coin’s beautiful Murano glass to full effect. Six deeply veined leaves frame the red glass poinsettia with sprigs of pine needles, ferns and holly berries filling the gaps to create a vibrant, festive feel - all punctuated by the shimmering gold foil embedded in the glass. Each glass poinsettia was handcrafted by master glassmaker Vio Col Vetro of Murano, Italy! Venetian Glass Coins sell out every year - don't delay, get yours today!

Canada 2017 Holiday Glass Christmas Tree $20 Silver SIDE VIEWA Beautiful Holiday Scene
Canada’s favorite festive flower will bloom forever with this coin’s stunning show of crimson glass. Murano glass dates back to 8th century Rome. At the time, glass was a luxury reserved strictly for the rich, and glassmakers enjoyed the same status as the aristocracy. This glass poinsettia has all the prestige that makes Murano one of the greatest glass producers of the world. Its delicate and airy form was individually blown with a sprinkling of gold foil for an added touch of Holiday sparkle. Shimmering from the surface of this extra-large coin, this breathtaking flower will captivate long after the potted poinsettia has faded away.
