Discover the enchanting beauty of the minuscule world with the 2016 $20 Little Creatures Snail 1oz Fine Silver Coin. This remarkable coin is the first release in a captivating series that celebrates Canada’s small yet wondrous creatures, showcasing a unique blend of artistry and craftsmanship.

Exquisite Artistry and Unique Craftsmanship

The coin’s reverse, designed by the acclaimed Canadian artist Maurice Gervais, features an exquisitely detailed depiction of a snail in its natural habitat. The vibrant colours and precise engraving bring the scene to life, with a mountain maple leaf providing a striking backdrop. This leaf, with its saw-toothed edges, is not just a design element but also a scale reference that highlights the snail’s delicate size.

Murano Glass: A Touch of Italian Elegance

What sets this coin apart is the beautiful Venetian glass snail, handcrafted and hand-blown by master glassmaker Giuliano Donaggio in Murano, Italy. Renowned for its exceptional vibrancy and uniqueness, Murano glass ensures that each coin is a distinctive piece of art. No two glass snails are identical, making every coin a one-of-a-kind collectible.

Pure Silver and Collectible Appeal

Minted with 99.99% pure silver, this coin is the ninth in a series to feature a Murano glass element, highly prized by collectors worldwide. Its intricate design and rarity make it a sought-after piece for numismatists and art enthusiasts alike.

Embrace the wonder of nature’s tiny marvels with this stunning silver coin, a perfect addition to any collection or a unique and thoughtful gift for those who appreciate the finer things in life.
