Description of obverse and reverse
Cast in sterling silver, a Christmas tree rises up from the centre of this reverse design by artist Anna Bucciarelli. The design includes an engraved pile of gifts beneath the tree, along with a toy train (also cast in sterling silver) that moves along the engraved track whenever the coin is tilted. Selective gold plating colours the rim and the holiday wreath that frame our enchanting Christmas scene. 

The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
A brief annotation
Christmas is a much-awaited holiday in Canadian households. Putting up Christmas decorations is a very popular way to celebrate the holidays. The Christmas tree and wreaths are common decorations, while a toy train is a perfect Christmas present.
