Canada isnt known as the Great White North or the Tundra for no good reason. The nation might experience the joys of spring and summer like the rest of the world, but it also endures some bitter-cold winters with heavy snowfall. Despite those temperatures and beneath the snow, there is an inherent beauty in Canadas winter wonderland. The 2017 1 oz Proof Canadian Silver Snow-Covered Trees Coin brings it to live, and is available now from JM Bullion.

Canadas winters can be harsh, but they also deliver their own idea of beauty with each snowflake that falls on the tundra. This coin paints a perfect picture of the beauty of a Canadian winter, with soft colors and intricate engravings that recreate the landscape of winter. The highlight of the design is a Venetian glass tree in the foreground.
On the reverse of each 2017 1 oz Proof Canadian Silver Snow-covered Trees coin youll find a Murano glass tree as the highlight of the design field. It was handcrafted by master glass makers Giorgio and Bernardino Vio of Murano, Italy for use on this coin. Additional features of the design include green pine trees kissed with snow, and a horse-drawn sleigh ready to take riders through the winter landscape.
The obverse of the Silver Snow-covered Trees coin includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Common on Canadian currency for decades, this effigy is a 2003 creation of Canadian artist Susanna Blunt.
Each of the 2017 1 oz Proof Canadian Silver Snow-Covered Trees coin in this listing has one unique feature. The designs from the Vios of the Murano glass tree is slightly different for each of the coins in this release, which means no two are exactly the same.
