2023 Canada $20 The Magic of the Season Fine Silver (No Tax)

A flash of colour. A swirl of snow. The sound of sleighbells filling the air. It’s a sight that many of us secretly hope to witness on Christmas Eve: Santa Claus and his team of magical reindeer streaking across the night sky, en route to deliver gifts to the children of the world! The thrill and wonder of the holiday season are captured on this fine silver coin’s colourful reverse, but to get the full effect, you’ll want to view this nighttime scene under a black light (included), which activates a magical moonlight glow effect.

This year Canadians have a shot at seeing a full moon just after Santa’s visit – it’s expected to occur on 26 December 2023.

The coin features a festive reverse design by artist Lisa Thomson Khan, whose depiction of Santa Claus in his reindeer-led sleigh captures the thrill and the magic of the holiday season. When the design is viewed under black light, the nighttime scene is illuminated by the glow of the full moon, resulting in a backlit effect. The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The design also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins throughout the reign of the Queen, as well as the double dates of her reign.

• There's more to see with a blacklight flashlight! The engraved design and festive colours are visible in daylight, but there’s a hidden element: move to a dark area, turn on a black light flashlight and hold it over the coin’s reverse to activate the moonlight glow, which captures that magical “night before Christmas” feeling.
