Murano Glass
Murano glass is glass made on the Venetian island of Murano, which has specialized in fancy glasswares for centuries. Murano’s glassmakers led Europe for centuries, developing or refining many technologies including crystalline glass, enamelled glass (smalto), glass with threads of gold (aventurine), multicolored glass (millefiori), milk glass (lattimo), and imitation gemstones made of glass. Today, the artisans of Murano are still employing these centuries-old techniques, crafting everything from contemporary art glass and glass figurines to Murano glass chandeliers and wine stoppers, as well as tourist souvenirs. Today, Murano is home to a vast number of factories and a few individual artists' studios making all manner of glass objects from mass marketed stemware to original sculpture. The Museo del Vetro (Glass Museum) in the Palazzo Giustinian houses displays on the history of glassmaking as well as glass samples ranging from Egyptian times through the present day.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Tony Bianco features a traditional Canadian winter scene in all of its tranquil beauty. As the countryside slumbers beneath a blanket of freshly fallen snow, three people venture out into the crisp morning air to enjoy a sleigh ride. Finely detailed engraving captures the intricacies of the horse-drawn sleigh and its occupants; positioned to the left side of the coin, they move through the pristine snow in front of a wooden cabin, where a plume of smoke from the chimney offers the promise of a warm fire upon their return. The grove of pines surrounds them like crystal spires, with the green colours of their branches barely visible beneath the bright white snow cover. In the centre of this scene is a breathtaking Murano glass tree that has been handcrafted by master glass makers Giorgio and Bernardino Vio of Murano, Italy; this embellishment’s delicate beauty perfectly conveys the shimmering, crystal-like qualities of the snow and ice that dominate the landscape. On the top of the coin the issue country: “Canada” and on the bottom of the coin, the face value: “20 Dollars” and ”, the issue year: “2017”. The obverse of the coin portrays the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
