Whilst various symbols are categorised as synonymous to this Special Period, one must not neglect the symbolism Snow holds during the festive period. The importance that snow holds originates back to the Victorian Times, and is directly related to the famous ‘A Christmas Carol’ written by Charles Dickens. Snow and ice is especially prevalent in this iconic book, and was what initiated the belief amongst Victorians that Snow and Christmas go hand in hand.
Did you know that no two snowflakes are the same? That remains true with the majestic release. The beautiful detail on this distinctively shaped ½ oz Silver Snowflake $1 Coin is made particularly special due to 7 aurora crystals that are embedded on the reverse. Due to the way that they reflect light, Aurora crystals are very similar visually to that of snowflakes! The obverse features the face value of 1 dollar in Fiji that further increases desirability for the remarkable legal tender release.
