Each holiday season, people search for ideal gifts for their friends and family. However, many gifts are subject to fashion trends and current popularity. When it comes to thoughtful holiday gifts that resist passing trends, Colonial Acres has 2 unique options to offer this season. Each of them is special in its own way:
- The 2017 Holiday 5-Coin Gift Set;
- The 2018 5 oz. Pure Silver Coin with Murano Glass – Holiday Splendour.
2017 Holiday 5-Coin Gift Set
One of the most popular holiday gift sets to date, this 5-coin set features a unique $1 coin. Additionally, the set includes several other classic uncirculated coins from 2017, such as the $2, as well as the 25-cent, 10-cent, and 5-cent coins. The Royal Canadian Mint has not placed these coins into circulation. In other words, this is a limited opportunity for you to get your hands on these classic Canadian coin designs, either to keep them as part of a collection or gift them to someone special.
Available for sale at Colonial Acres, this original heartwarming holiday coin set boasts the following special features:
- Easily sent by mail. The set arrives to you complete with a unique and beautiful graphic envelope allowing you to put it in the post quickly and easily;
- Designed to be gifted. The Holiday Gift Set was originally designed specifically for the purpose of being gifted to a special someone and includes a space for you to write a heartfelt holiday message;
- Special coin only available as part of this set. The specially struck $1 coin can only be acquired as part of this Holiday Gift Set, making it the perfect present for numerous occasions.
2018 5 oz. Pure Silver Coin with Murano Glass – Holiday Splendour
Boasting a stunning show of crimson glass and Canada’s favourite festive flower, this coin is truly a magnificent and exquisite piece. A particularly intriguing aspect of this unique coin is the fact that Murano glass dates back to eighth-century Rome. Glassmakers back then enjoyed the same status as aristocracy and Murano glass was reserved strictly for the rich.
This coin boasts a number of diverse and special features:
- GST/HST Exempt. Your 5 oz. Pure Silver Coin with Murano Glass – Holiday Splendour is GST/HST exempt;
- Very Low Mintage. This coin is limited to only 1,500 units worldwide;
- Large Diameter. A diameter of 65.25 mm is the centrepiece of your $50 coin. It is the ideal size to showcase the magnificent design coupled with the Murano glass poinsettia;
- One-of-a-kind Murano glass poinsettia. Each Murano glass poinsettia on these coins was individually handcrafted by master glassmaker Vio Col Vetro of Murano, Italy with the use of gold foil holiday sparkling.
Both of these holiday gifts represent unique and thoughtful ways of making a loved one happy. Because of their size, they also serve as practical presents easily placed in Christmas stockings. If you have a baby in the family and this is its first holiday, either of these gifts is a wonderful way to continue the tradition. Remember, Colonial Acres Coins is home to these and many more interesting coins and holiday gifts, so make sure to check out their selection.
