A stunning keepsake that will become a cherished family heirloom to enrich Diwali celebrations for generations to come.

Diwali is the most important holiday in India. It's a New Year's celebration that is also known as the "Festival of Lights," and is celebrated by millions of people every year. The notion of light triumphing over dark is incredibly symbolic; so universal that it has inspired cultures around the world for centuries. But Diwali is more than a single flame; it fills homes, streets—and hearts!—with light. Diwali revellers are an incredibly diverse ethno-cultural group. Hindu, Sikh, Jain… every faith has its own Diwali legends, but the unifying thread is always a celebration of good triumphing over evil.

The flame at the centre of this coin captures the essence of the Festival, while its overall design echoes the Ashoka Chakra (wheel of the law) that appears on the national flag of India. The maple leaf and diya (clay lamp) illustrate the blending of multiple cultures, as Canada has become a home for Diwali celebrations.

Your coin is crafted in 99.99% pure gold and captures the shimmering essence of the Festival of Lights. Order yours today!

About the Design:
The reverse design by Canadian artist Sarindar Dhaliwal brings together East and West in this uplifting design inspired by the Ashoka Chakra (wheel of the law) that appears on the national flag of India. A maple leaf and diya (clay lamp) are key central elements that illustrate the blending of multiple cultures as Canada has become a home for Diwali celebrations. The flame at the centre of the design reflects the essence of the Festival of Lights, its light radiating outwards like spokes on a wheel that are framed by a ring of maple leaves.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint branded maroon clamshell and includes a graphic beauty box.
