2022 Canada 50-cent Santa's Sleigh Lenticular Coin

Step inside Santa’s workshop! It’s Christmas Eve at the North Pole, and while Santa Claus is busy putting on his red suit, these elves are loading toys and gift boxes onto his sleigh. This lenticular coin offers a sneak peek at preparations for Santa’s annual gift delivery. His magical helpers are working as fast as they can, but look out! When the coin is tipped, the elves will have to act quickly to catch those falling boxes.

Santa’s elves were a well-kept secret until the 1800s—in fact, no one knew Santa Claus himself was a “jolly old elf” until it was revealed in the poem A Visit from St. Nicholas (you probably know it as The Night Before Christmas).

Designed by Canadian artist Jesse Koreck, the coin’s reverse is enhanced with lenticular technology, which creates a sense of motion through the seamless transition between two interlaced colour images. Both images capture the excitement and activity at the North Pole on Christmas Eve, as Santa’s industrious elves load toys and gift boxes onto his magical sleigh. While one helper is checking the list, the elf in the foreground races to assist another with a stack of gifts; when the coin is tipped, the second image shows the panic on the elves’ faces as some of the gifts fall from the top of the pile. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
