Throughout many countries in the world, Christmas is a time of celebration and for honouring the ideals of peace, joy, hope and happiness.
One of the forgotten traditions of the festive season, is the giving and receiving of coins.
Throughout history, coins and medallions have been given to loved ones for their precious metal value and as a token of respect, affection and esteem.
The coin’s reverse portrays a joyful abstract design, inspired by snow crystals and Christmas ornaments. The coin incorporates a transparent locket containing an array of semi-precious gemstones which can be viewed from both sides.
No more than 5,000 of these coins will be struck by The Perth Mint.
Each coin is presented in a stunningly illustrated presentation card which opens out to display the coin. With room to write a festive message on the inside of this card, it makes the perfect Christmas gift.
